Thanks for all the updates, Momo1435! I'm really looking forward to seeing that first OT being constructed.

So, now is the time to dwarf all the buildings in Tokyo...
I never really thought CN tower was super tall, but the Tokyo Sky Tree tower in Tokyo makes me realize that.

I hope earthquake proofing technology allows Tokyo to have more supertalls which it deserves.

And while nobody could see it they put up the first pieces for the next level, 11 days after the last one.

This will make the height about 310 meters.

This tower is gargantuan. It makes the other multi-stories look like ant hills. Beautiful!

I live in Shinjuku-ku (the opposite side of downtown Tokyo from the Sky Tree), and I still haven't seen it from anywhere around here (Takadanobaba to Shibuya on the Yamanote Line). Does anyone know any vantage points around this area where you can see it? Does anyone have photos?

2/28 Tokyo Marathon pictures.

But the runners didn't get a good view of the Sky Tree because of the weather.

That means that the tower will pass the Tokyo Tower already this month and there won't be a serious slow down before they will reach the observation deck.

later on the day

Thank you for the fantastic updates! The most distinguishable landmark in the city already for sure!

The center is not unimaginably huge, it's just that you got more separate central areas in Tokyo then most other cities that makes it feel bigger then it is in reality. If you got good shoes and know your way it's even quite a walkable city.


Some YouTube video's for a change.
