Observatory relaunched at Sunshine 60

posted on April 25, 2016

The Sunshine 60 Observatory in Toshima Ward, Tokyo, reopened on Thursday with the new name Sky Circus Sunshine 60 Observatory following recent renovations. The facility now also features new rides.

Sunshine City, which operates the facility, aims to attract more than 800,000 annual visitors.

The facility is located on top of a 220-meter-tall, 60-story building that has long been a popular sightseeing spot offering panoramic views of Tokyo from the district of Ikebukuro. The observatory was closed about a year ago so work could be done to make it more attractive.

The admission fee is ¥1,800 for adults; ¥1,500 for high school, university and technical school students; and ¥900 for primary and middle school students. Additional fees are necessary for the rides.
