Tokyo Sky Tree Blows Away Tokyo Tower

I wrote a while back about how Tokyo Tower was a big letdown and how it has lost its attraction as a tourist site (there’s no romance left there at all – how could there be? They have a flea market on the first floor!)

Well, the next one to visit will be Sky Tree. It is something like three times taller than Tokyo Tower.

Here is an awesome photo (that I took myself!)

The Tokyo Sky Tree, now completed and opened in the capital’s

Sumida Ward, is seen from a helicopter in 2012.

The tower is 634 meters tall.
