It is a land mark. An observation tower. A broadcasting point. It is fantastic.

It will become Japan's tallest structure once it surpasses the 332.5 metres (1,091 ft) Tokyo Tower:

I'm surprised with all the high-tech in Japan they only have a tower that is really low in height compared to other cities in seismic zones.

Wow 289 metres and rising. I could see snow covering the surrounding area of the site as well as the tower structure in the picture above.

Probably early March when it continues with about 10 meters per week. But it depends on how quick it will go when it comes up to the 1st observation deck, it could slow down a bit then.


And 1 picture to keep you all entertained for now.

Probably. The same thing has happened with Burj Khalifa several times. Good thing they build these towers with lightning in mind!

The resulting photos should be spectacular.

It's very interesting, all these low buildings and then WHAM! It really draws your vision upwards. I'm sure when it's done its presence will be much stronger.

When you ride this Jetcoaster you have a good view of the Skytree, especially during the wave part, situated on the roof of LaAqua buiding, you are just in the correct axis to look at it! At night it's very impressive!
