Tokyo Sky Tree, under construction in Tokyo's Sumida Ward, will open May 22, 2012, Tobu Railway Co. announced June 7.
When completed, the terrestrial digital broadcasting tower will soar 634 meters above the city, making it Japan's tallest structure and the world's tallest free-standing telecommunications tower.
Admission to the second, or top, observation deck, about 450 meters above ground, will cost an expensive 3,000 yen ($37.40), the operator of Tokyo Sky Tree said. Tickets will be available starting in March 2012.

Advance tickets with a fixed date and time will be available for an additional 500 yen.
Admission to the first observation deck, about 350 meters from ground, will be cheaper at 2,000 yen.
With a slew of visitors expected when the Tree opens, only fixed-date tickets will be sold for the first 45 days, Tobu Railway said.
The company estimates 5.4 million people will visit the tower alone in the first year, and 25 million will visit the tower or its new commercial facilities. Operating hours will be from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Tadasuke Koguchi, 33, from Funabashi, Chiba Prefecture, visited the construction site June 7 with his girlfriend.
"The price is higher than I'd expected, but I would like to come when the initial madness settles down a bit," he said. "If I visit, I do want to go up to the second observation deck. I am curious to see Funabashi from that height."
Five students at a private high school in Saitama Prefecture stood looking up the structure. "Close up, it's really huge," one said. "I definitely want to visit when it's done."

Tsuneo Yamazawa, a 79-year-old carpenter from Sumida Ward, wasn't concerned with the admission price. "I don't think its too high or too low. I just want to go up to the top observatory."
Yoshie Niwa, 76, who was walking her dog, said the admission fee was too high.
"It would be too much for a family," she said. "I hope locals get a discount."
Sumida Ward allocated about 4.2 billion yen for tower-related projects this fiscal year.
Tokyo Sky Tree will have a commercial facility called "Tokyo Sky Tree Town," including the 31-story building and Tokyo Soramachi (Tokyo sky town) complex, housing about 310 shops, including 20 outlets of businesses in Sumida and neighboring Taito Ward.
