4What should I do if on the day of admission I forget to bring the credit card that I used to make the online reservation?

4Tickets are issued by reading the customer information recorded on their credit card.

This may take some time to process. We thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Rates for visitors with disabilities

13Can I buy tickets at the rate for visitors with disabilities when purchasing online?

13We apologize that due to system circumstances you cannot buy tickets at the rate for visitors with disabilities in advance online or at a Seven-Eleven Multifunction Copier (Ticket PIA). Please temporarily purchase tickets at the regular rate. Then, on the day of your visit, at the TOKYO SKYTREE 4F Ticket Counter, we will confirm the physically disabled certificate (or copy) and refund the difference in cash.

14When the rate for visitors with disabilities applies, is it necessary to show the physically disabled certificate on the day of admission?

14On the day of your visit, you will need to show the certificate when the admission ticket is issued. For visitors who may have difficulty holding the original certificate, a copy of the personal information page is fine.

15If a person has a physical disability, does the rate for visitors with disabilities apply even if they do not have a physically disabled certificate?

15We apologize, but the rate does not apply in this case. The rate is applied based on the physically disabled certificate.

16Does the rate for persons with disabilities apply to persons accompanying a person with a disability?

16The rate applies to the number of accompanying people equal to the number of disabled visitors.
