Tokyo Sky Tree a growing part of Kanto's skyline

From Utsunomiya to Mt. Tsukuba to Chiba Port Tower, Tokyo Sky Tree is becoming a part of the Kanto skyline.

Two years after construction started on the terrestrial digital broadcasting tower in Sumida Ward, Tokyo, the "tree" now stands 398 meters high and has become a dominant part of the horizon in Tokyo--and beyond.

About 700 pictures of the tower, taken from various spots, are carried on a Web site called "Tokyo Sky Tree Kokokara Mieruyo Map" (Map showing from where you can see Tokyo Sky Tree) managed jointly by the tower's constructor, Tobu Tower Sky Tree Co., and an office of copywriter Shigesato Itoi.

The longest-range picture of the tower when the Web site was launched in February was taken from Hachioji, western Tokyo--about 45 kilometers from the tower--according to Itoi's office. The tower was about 300 meters tall in February.

Recently, pictures taken from Mt. Kogashi in Utsunomiya, about 100 kilometers from the tower, and from Mt. Tsukuba in Ibaraki Prefecture, about 65 kilometers away, have been contributed to the Web site.

"The tower can be seen from more and more places. We've been surprised to get photos from places further away than we expected," an official in charge of the Web site said.

The tower can be seen from Chiba Port Tower in Chuo Ward, Chiba, and Umihotaru Parking Area of the Tokyo Bay Aqua Line expressway in Kisarazu, Chiba Prefecture. A person using the binoculars on the Peace Museum of Saitama's observation tower in Higashi-Matsuyama, Saitama Prefecture, would be able to see the tower despite being about 50 kilometers away.

Tokyo Sky Tree is expected to top 400 meters in late July or early August, and be completed in December 2011. When finished, the 634-meter tower will be visible from Mito and from the southern tip of the Boso Peninsula--about 90 kilometers away. The tower might also be visible from even further away from higher altitudes.

Construction of the second observation deck, which will be 450 meters above ground, will start this autumn or winter. The view from this deck will take in a 75-kilometer radius, including places such as Lake Kasumigaura in Ibaraki Prefecture and the Miura Peninsula in Kanagawa Prefecture.

As are lower buildings.

How much detail of Tokyo is normally visible by naked eye from Fujiyama?

Can someone explain the next steps to construct the top of the tower? I see only two possibilities:
1) the pod cranes will lift the next sections into place, then jump. They will have to attach the cranes to the new part of the tower with bridge supports because it would become too tall and unstable as the tower gets higher.

2) The next section will be the absolute top spire section, and a jacking process will raise it and the next lower section will be assembled under it. This doesn't make too much sense because the weight would get absurd as the sections are added.

I believe method 1 will be used until the top of the second pod. The spire will be constructed within the hollow core and then jacked up.

Method 1 is indeed the way they are going to do it.

This Shigesato Itoi? As a huge fan of Nintendo, that really clicked. The things you learn every day.
