I visited Tokyo Sky Tree(opened in May,2012)several times and found many great spots. I strongly recommend foreign tourists to visit there.
First of all, free space in front of “Beer & Pub Super Dry” on 30th floor of Soramachi, which is one of the best place to see appearance of Sky Tree.
Sky tree from 30th floor.
Lower part of Sky Tree. Scary.
You can see Tokyo Tower.
Secondly, I recommend surrounding area of Sky Arena. However, please notice that it is sometimes too much crowded.
In such case,please visit Sumida Aquarium.
There is a place called “Farm Garden” on the backyard of Sumida Aquarium.
There are benches and not crowded.
Also bending machines
You can see Sky Tree having some juice..
Nextly, I would like to recommend “Tree Village” to foreign tourists who like Japanese Animation. You can see variety of charcter and good. “One piece” “Naruto”,,,,,,,,,,,,.
Finally, if you intend to go to observation platform, I recommend to go there at night. You can see a beautiful night view.
