Tokyo Sky Tree tallest structure in Japan

Tokyo Sky Tree is going up right on schedule, cheek by jowl with the 400-year old neighborhoods of Asakusa, Mukojima and Ryogoku. 

When completed in December 2011, the 634-meter tall structure will be the world’s tallest freestanding television and radio broadcasting tower. 

Take a rickshaw from Asakusa, famous for its Kaminarimon Gate, and crane your neck for a better look, or admire the tower from afar aboard a scenic cruise boat on the Sumida River. 

The structure is also easily visible from Mukojima, still a geisha district today, and Ryogoku, home of sumo’s Kokugikan arena


Height of tower: 634m
Observatories: 350m and 450m
Facilities: Broadcasting, shops and restaurant
Cost: 60bn Yen (£500m)
Construction time: Four years
Height of tower: 634m
