Tokyo SKYTREE in Tokyo Japan

This tower is TOKYO SKYTREE.

It's a broadcasting tower with restaurants and observation decks in Sumida-ward Tokyo.

It's the tallest structure in Japan. It's 634 meters tall.

The height was decided on for two reasons.

First, it's the tallest free-standing tower in the world.

Second, "634" can be pronounced as "MUSASHI" in Japanese.

"MUSASHI" is an old name of Tokyo area.

It was completed in 2012.

The second deck's height is 450 meters.

Thanks, Cindy!

You need to buy tickets to go these decks..

It's a very popular sightseeing spot,

so I recommend you to book the ticket on their website.
