Perhaps this bear will command a whole view of the Kanto plains from an observatory.

Maybe, but I am thinking of throwing Mr. Teddy off the observatory when the tower is done and watch him do a free fall.

All these updates save me time! No need for me to search for all the blog pictures.


Don't worry, I won't stop doing them but it's nice to see some 'real' updates.

Such a huge tall structure in Tokyo is almost like a culture shock. No one has every seen such a thing over here!
And if we think it's massive now just wait until it hits 610m! I can only imagine what this tower will do for the Tokyo skyline..

In all the pictures it's the same color as the tower, but I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out in the end to be white and international orange (not red) because of the safety regulations in Japan. I guess it's a wait and see for this one.

Tokyo SkyTree UC Update - Progress shot



Tokyo Skytree is behind the tower but you can see the growth by measuring against the communication tower on this shot.

This tower will look clearer from distance with it being generally a henge building. The width of the spire links with the rest of the tower.

Pace of the Progress

This shot was taken on 8-29.


Again, this shot was taken on 9-26.


In just one month time, you can see how fast this tower is growing!

9/26 & 9/27 blog round up.

If it doesn't grow in 1 week I already get a little impatient, but not anymore since they've started on the next level. The target for this month was 150m, they went well over it since it should be just under 160m right now and I won't be surprised that it go over before the end of the month.


ameblo.jp/nzmst/


tokyo-sky-tree.seesaa.net/

The target for October is still 180m, but I have no doubt that they will go even faster. That's the beauty of local just in time construction, this tower is completely "Made in Japan". The steel parts come directly from the factory by truck to the building site, it's just a short ride around the Tokyo Bay.

More pictures.







Around the base they've been busy with the foundation for the buildings around the tower.





Just a remember where the pictures where taken.


masaharus-eye.cocolog-nifty.com/blog/

And again a wonderful set from the 512colors blog.

Great update of Tokyo Sky Tree; do you know the height or the level of the tower at this point?

At that point, the situation after the work on Friday was 153 meters, right now it is already a bit taller. The level are just construction levels, you can count them by the horizontal lines in the tower. If I'm correct looking trough all the scaffolding they have finished the 11th level.
