The world’s tallest tower in Tokyo opened to public last Tuesday 15. Around 8,000 visitors were expected to take a tour in the tower by using the high-speed elevators up to the observation decks of the 634-meter (2.080-foot) tower. People reportedly waited in line for more than a week to for this panoramic view.
Skytree beat the Canton Tower in China, which is 600 meters (1.968 ½ feet), and it is documented by Guinness World Records as the tallest in the world.
Skytree is in a different category from Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest structure, because it is a skyscraper, not a tower.
The skytree will serve as a touristic attraction and a broadcast tower for television and radio.
