If anyone plans on heading up this tower, it's gonna cost you almost $40.
Tokyo Sky Tree’s Outrageously Expensive Observation Deck Entry Fee: 3000 Yen
June 8, 2011
One adult ticket to the top observation deck will cost 3,000 yen (about $37).
Here’s how it compares to other observation decks:
Burj Khalifa – about 2,200 yen (if purchased in advance for a specific date and time – otherwise its about 8,800 yen)
Guangzhou TV Tower – about 1,800 yen
Eiffel Tower – about 1,500 yen
Tokyo Tower – 1,420 yen
That's not really surprising to me considering that a lot of things in Tokyo are expensive (so I've heard). Here's a video with the information, but it's probably only useful if you actually know Japanese or just want to check out what it looks like from the top.

1:42 for a quick time-lapse of its construction. 2:12 for the base of the antenna, 3:00 for the BASE jumper's paradise. It cuts away to compare it to the radio tower in North Dakota, then more shots from the top at 4:28. Try not to get vertigo at 5:20. 7:20 is where the guy talks about the prices.
