Tokyo Skytree
#About the Tallest Tower in Tokyo

Skytree, is the tallest tower in the world and the second tallest building in history. In recent years, the needle shaped Skytree had become one of the symbols of Tokyo and Japan.

The Skytree is 634 meters high, twice the height of the Eiffel Tower in Paris. It was built for about three and a half years, at a cost of $820 million. At the top of the tower are two viewpoints, one at heights of 350 meters and the other 450 meters above the city.

By the way, the Tokyo Solamachi Canyon, at the bottom or base of the Tokyo Skytree, is a great place to release the lust for shopping nesting in all of us. It also has a great aquarium called the Sumida Aquarium.

The observation of Mt. Fuji from the Tokyo Skytree, the volcano that is Japan's highest mountain, is wonderful. From here you can watch it from 100 kilometers away. This is one of the most beautiful Japanese sights, especially for those who choose not to go hiking.

The tower itself was damaged by the earthquake that hit Japan in 2011, but it survived and construction slowed down for only two months, proving the strength of Japanese construction technology and its resilience to earthquakes.
