The SKY CIRCUS Sunshine 60 Observatory is an Observation Deck perched 240 meters above ground in Sunshine City, where you can see 360 degrees. You can also go outside, which is rare for an observatory.
There are no skyscrapers around like in Shinjuku, so you can look around 360 degrees.
The SKY Deck offers a panoramic view of the Tokyo Sky Tree, Tokyo Tower, and other Tokyo tourist attractions.
Admission is 620 yen for adults and 310 yen for children (4 years old to elementary school students) to enjoy the observation deck.
There is an indoor observation deck on the 60th floor, a sky restaurant on the 58th and 59th floors, and a rooftop observation deck Sky Deck on the rooftop.
