Tokyo Sky Tree

Tokyo's hottest and higest place to be is the bulding "Tokyo Sky Tree". It's just the largest tower, in Tokyo! Only shyscrapers half the size were built before and it is the perfect place to get the best view not in an airplane. Check it out!

The Tokyo Sky Tree, a new tower under construction for terrestrial digital broadcasting, is more than just a new tower in Tokyo, Japan. It will include restaurant, shopping mall around tower and so many people have welcomed the new tower as a way of revitalizing the area. The name was chosen from various candidates such as “new tokyo tower”, “Rising Tower” and etc via internet votes.

It started building on July 14, 2008 and it will complete December, 2011 or early spring in 2012 for the latest.
When completed, the tower will have a height of 634 m (2,080 ft) and it will be one of the higest tower in worldwide. We used to called “Musashi” for this area including Tokyo, Saitama and Kanagawa and this one of the reason why a height of 634 m because you can read 634 as Musashi in Japanese!

I prefer to take this kind of tall staff by Horizon! I can capture image from very bottom to top.

A height already passed original tokyo tower, 333m, and you can see from almost every where in east side of Tokyo!

You can not miss the original color of the tokyo sky tree. It called “Sky tree white” and based on tradional color “Aijiro”. Moreover you can expect great light up by blue and perpul, every othere day!
