The base of the tower has a structure like a tripod; from a stature of around 350 m (1,150 ft) or more, the tower's structure is round and hollow to offer all encompassing perspectives of the waterway and the city. There are observatories at 350 m (1,150 ft), with a limit of up to 2000 individuals, and 450 m (1,480 ft), with a limit of 900 individuals. The upper observatory includes a winding, glass-shrouded skywalk in which guests climb the last 5 meters to the most elevated point at the upper stage. An area of glass deck gives guests a direct descending perspective of the roads underneath.

The tower has seismic sealing, including a focal shaft made of strengthened cement. The fundamental inner column is joined to the external tower structure 125 meters (410 ft) over the ground. From that point until 375 meters (1,230 ft) the column is appended to the tower outline with oil dampers, which go about as pads amid a quake. As indicated by the planners, the dampers can retain 50 percent of the vitality from an earthquake.The tallness of 634 m (2,080 ft) was chosen to be effortlessly recollected. The figures 6 (mu), 3 (sa), 4 (shi) stand for "Musashi", an old name of the area where the Tokyo Skytree stands.
