The Tobu Skytree Line is a renamed portion of the original Tobu Isesaki Line, in conjunction with the opening of Tokyo Skytree on 17 March 2012. After my visit to Tokyo Skytree, I headed on to the Tobu Skytree Line Local service to get to my next destination, the Tobu Museum.
The Tokyo Skytree Station is directly connected to the Tokyo Skytree via a linked escalator. Tickets can be purchased from the machine on the right.

Instead of going through the ticket barriers and having my ticket being eaten up by the machine, I headed for the manual counter to get my ticket stamped out by the staff so that I could keep it.
