Tokyo Skytree is designed in its original color of the lightest shade of Japanese traditional indigo blue, called "Skytree White", which represents harmony with the scenery it is surrounded by.


There are two observation decks located in the Skytree, the Tembo Deck and the Tembo Galleria. The Tembo Deck stands at about 350 meters, comprising three stories. The first floor has the Skytree Cafe and a glass-paneled section of the floor which gives a view of the tower from the ground up, the middle floor is the Skytree shop where you can purchase souvenirs, and the third floor has floor to ceiling windows for a panoramic view of Tokyo. The Tembo Galleria is at 450 meters up from the tower and has two floors which are joined by a walkway that spirals up around the outer edge of the deck.
