USA vs China vs Japan: Observation deck battle :)

I think observation decks are the best thing in a skyscraper.

Add skyscrapers with an public observation deck to my list.

Let me begin

USA:
Empire State Building (New York)


China:
Shung Hing Square (Shenzhen)


Japan
Sunshine 60 (Tokyo)

Chicago's notable include JHC and Sears Skydeck. There were many other observation decks before but as these two towers went up the others became obsolete and were closed or changed into private clubs.

^ They are not observation decks, but skylobbies that are open to the public. No Hong Kong skyscraper has a public observation deck yet.

Oh my bad. Interesting that HK's got alot of scrapers but hardly any observation decks.

The only thing that counts is the one in The Peak though it's not in a skyscraper.
