Tokyo Skytree is the tallest structure in Japan, and is the 2nd tallest structure in the world (as of Jan 11, 2015)!
Not only is the architecture impressive - it's a fun place to go since there are so many shops & restaurants.
Don't go to the dining area on the 6th and 7th floor though - due to the fact that the price range is rather low (~2,000yen for lunch) it's very crowded and when I went, every single restaurant had a 30+ minute wait.
Instead, I highly recommend you to go to the 30th and 31st floor! The price point is slightly higher (maybe, 1000yen more), but no lines, good food and a better view!
I visited an Italian restaurant called Brasserie Aux Amis on the 30th floor. An amazing lunch course (w/ all you can eat fresh bread) for just 2800yen!
We also did not visit the observation deck (2000yen) since we thought that the view from the 30th floor was free & wonderful. :)
