Shibuya Sky is an important part of the Tokyo skyline and, with its 229 meters, leaves an unforgettable impression on its visitors.
Shibuya Sky has temporarily stopped the rental of baby strollers in order to stop the spread of Covid-19.
It is the highest point in Shibuya District and is divided into 3 zones. From the 14th to the 45th floor is the so-called Sky Gate, which heralds the visit with digital art displays. Then follows the Sky Stage: this 360 ° viewing platform under the open sky offers a great view of Shibuya Scramble Square. In addition to the breathtaking views, there are hammocks on the roof and an observation compass that allows you to see major landmarks like Tokyo Tower, Tokyo Stadium, and even Mount Fuji (on a clear day).
At night there is a light show called "" Crossing Light "" with 18 rays illuminating the city sky. Finally, on the 46th floor is the Sky Gallery, where you can relax and finish your visit in the bar and café.
After buying your tickets on the 14th floor, get ready for an exhilarating ride in the transition pod elevators, taking you to the 45th floor. Be sure to visit the souvenir shop before you head back down to earth.
From the 46th floor’s Sky Gallery you can travel down Time River past the parallel windows that let you see far into the distance. And how about a cozy Date Scape for a little romantic mood before enjoying digital art in the space around you?
On the rooftop, 47 floors above Shibuya, marvel at the surrounding vista. Let the Geo Compass point you in the right direction and help you get your bearings. Wander across the crossing light and make your way to the Cloud Hammock. Feel like you’re flying over the city at Sky Edge before you safely make your way back.

There is a restaurant right in front of the Meguro station where you can eat your own fish. All kinds of Japanese dishes and fresh seafood are also served. In some pools inside the restaurant you can catch your own fish with a fishing rod and net and then let the staff know which table it should be brought to. You can watch the fish being prepared in the kitchen and let you know in advance how the fish should be prepared: whether as sashimi, grilled, boiled, deep-fried (with tempura) or as sushi. If you don't manage to catch your own fish, then you can of course order a fish from the menu. However, the price is much lower if you want to have your own catch cooked .
