Together with Tokyo Skytree, Tokyo Solamachi is a commercial facility that links Japan with the world. It offers more than 300 stores, and is a commercial complex full of variety that visitors can enjoy, whether for shopping, sightseeing, or daily errands.
Along the 120m passageway named Solamachi Shotengai Shopping District in East Yard 1F, there are 35 food shops, sundries stores, and cafes. This area can be enjoyed by all who come to Tokyo Solamachi, as it is conveniently located above the subway station and has an open feeling since it is connected to a plaza. With an open and rhythmical saddle roof, relaxed and warm eaves, lit shop signs that use faceted glass from the Edo period, and plants that are reminiscent of gardens in alleys, this shopping district is full of vitality with a taste of the past.
A shopping street that faces the alley connected to the Tokyo Skytree Station. This street features a gathering of stores that convey the monozukuri Japanese spirit of manufacturing, and promises encounters and sensations with objects, where the creator and user come in contact.
East Yard 2F is a practical fashion zone that reflects the various tastes of women. Based on the themes of “beautiful,” “cute,” and “delicious,” this floor houses many fashion stores, sundries stores, and sweets shops. East Yard/Tower Yard 3F features stores that focus on a relaxed lifestyle while bringing a hint of excitement to the daily lives of women and families.
As the “local kitchen,” West Yard/Tower Yard 2F features stores that sell fresh produce and Japanese and western deli dishes every day. Here, you will also find limited-edition sweets and specialty gifts that are available only here, such as sweets based on the concept of the shitamachi old town.
West Yard 3F features the Food Court Solamachi Tabe-Terrace, which is made up of an open “Food Marche” surrounding seating for customers. Visitors can enjoy a variety of food, from Japanese, western and Chinese, to dessert, while taking in the food marché and festival fun.
East Yard 4F is a floor with the greatest selection of souvenirs in Tokyo Skytree Town, and is made up of specialty stores that focus on Japan as it is “now.” This floor is designed based on the theme of oodana merchant stores that were common in Edo towns. The traditional Japanese structural aesthetics of columns, beams, and crossbeams contribute to a unified appearance of the various stores. West Yard 4F is a zone popular among families and students on school trips, lined with official TV and entertainment stores, as well as street food.
East Yard 5F is a corporate information space offering new experiences and sensations, by communicating original identities such as the history, culture, and technology of major companies of Japan. Rather than simply being a PR facility, this intriguing floor continues to provide new experiential values to everyone, as they are able to come in contact with the lively culture of the region and Japan, and “experience and learn through play.”
East Yard 6F and 7F make up Solamachi Dining, which is Tokyo Solamachi's main dining floors. On 6F, there are restaurants with staple menus that everyone can enjoy, as well as specialty restaurants that offer the local cuisine of different regions in Japan. The design of 6F and 7F is based on the concept of a “mansion” with a lively touch. These floors, each with their own character, have symbolic open ceiling spaces that fuse the two floors into a single “mansion,” and the two floors are linked by stairs that are designed with curves, which is a symbol of these floors.
With a close-up view of the Tokyo Skytree, Solamachi Dining Skytree View, which is located approximately 150m above the ground, is lined with authentic high-quality restaurants for discerning families and couples on special occasions. Based on the design concept of a “vacation home in heaven” where time passes slowly, this dining area exudes sophistication. It offers glorious views amongst the dynamically expanding skyline and welcomes everyone.
