Ice skating rink at TOKYO SKYTREE TOWN
The pop-up ice rink at TOKYO SKYTREE TOWN (hereafter “Skytree Town”) was new to the outdoor skating scene in Tokyo last winter.
The rink will come back for this season to the 4th floor of Skytree Town, in a fantastic setting again with the Skytree looming above – great for romantic dates or outings with friends and the family.
Features of the rink 2019
The outdoor rink will host special events, including the opening ceremony with popular skaters and sisters Miyu and Sara Honda and greetings offered by Skytree Town’s official character Solakara-chan.
The rink will also provide a place for children to glide and play in the snow safely.
New this season, the admission will be reduced for overseas visitors upon presentation of a valid passport.
A good news!
