This year  on the 22nd of May [2 months ago], Tokyo Sky Tree was opened to the public!
And underneath it, a new mall opened on the same day. Its called Solamachi.
Last month [ it was a month old ], i paid it a visit with a good friend [Miss Lynette] and it was packed!!!!
Huge hello kitty doll in front of a Tokyo Sky Tree miniature heehee
You can see what i bought here
And those looking for something to buy home..dont forget the super exclusive Tokyo Banana Tree
See my post on it here
There are so many things to do, see , buy and eat here. What i have shown you is just a tiny fraction [i will try to more again next time!]
FYI, though I went on a tuesday and it was packed out.
If you intend to go, try to go on a weekday!!
Tokyo Sky Tree town has a gorgeous aquarium on the 5th floor as well. [i did not visit as it was crazy packed]
Note: you must pay admission to the aquarium as well.

How to get there:
There are two stations close by, you can go to
1. Tokyo Sky Tree Station [new station!]
2. Oshiage Station [this is the one i went to]
For more info please visit the website: http://www.tokyo-solamachi.jp/
Note: The mall is open to public but if you wish to visit the Sky Tree itself, you have to join the ticket reservation queue and its sold out months ahead of time. Please take note of this before visiting 😀
In other news, did you have a good weekend?
Unlike other weekends, i got up uber early on Saturday [even though i went to bed at 4am on Friday night XD] to watch the Olympics Opening Ceremony. I thought it was pretty good! I enjoyed the ending most of all [Sir Paul McCartney!! omggg!]
What did you think?
Have a wonderful week ahead!
