Shibuya SKY observation deck

Shibuya is one of the most crowded and busiest towns in Tokyo. It has one of the most exciting observation decks as well. Shibuya SKY, located at the rooftop of the skyscraper called Shibuya Scramble Square, started operation about 2 years ago as a viewing space at the height of 230 meters above the ground. The area is surrounded by transparent glass walls standing at the very edge of the building. So, if you get closer to the walls, you can look down almost vertically. You find only the sky above you (there is no ceiling), and the surrounding walls are all see-through; it is an actual open space. The roofs of other tall buildings, a famous Shibuya intersection, the Meiji shrine’s forest are all below you. Try it once unless you are not scared of heights!
