Tokyo Skytree

Tokyo Skytree is a massive broadcasting, restaurant, & observation tower.

​In 2010 ​It became the tallest structure in Japan and reached its full height of 634.0 meters in March 2011.

​​Be prepared for a long wait in what seems like a never ending queue to get to the elevators. Don’t despair because it is well worth the wait, the view of Tokyo from the top is simply specular.​ Ticket cost is around 2,000 Yen and worth every penny. I believe if you pre book on-line the wait is much shorter.

The​ UK Telegraph reported that the​ 634-metre (2,080-foot) Tokyo Sky Tree is the world’s second-tallest structure behind the 828-metre (2,717-foot) Burj Khalifa in Dubai​. I believe this is incorrect, it seems to come in at 6th or 7th in 2015.​ Anyhow it really doesn’t matter where it ranks because when you are at the top it is breathtaking.
