This thing sure looks lonely being there by itself. I say Tokyo build some supertalls around that area

how does the antenna rise if the crane doesnt reach the top, i mean how do the new sections reach the top and get into place????
They're not adding new sections to the top of the spire. It's already assembled inside of the tower itself and is being jacked up slowly so that the workers can attach the antenna assemblies to each section as it rises.

I wonder if they are going to lower the antenna to attach the missing piece once it arrives.

I was wondering about how they're going to do that myself but I don't they they would lower the whole assembly because after all of the antenna assembly has been attached I doubt if it would even fit back into the space within the tower. I'm sure they'll come up with some very clever way of doing it but the higher up it goes the more difficult it's going to be.

I don't think they will lower the tower with the lower antennas already attached, it simply won't fit back into the core. That makes this question actually the same as "How are they going to replace antennas when they happen to break down after the tower is completed?".

They must have some system installed that makes it possible to lift pieces up to the absolute top. We will see soon enough when the missing antennas are installed, probably after the whole spire completed.

I doubt that the spire rise again until they get the missing antennas in place, just because it's a too big of a job to manually put in those large antenna sections without a crane to lift them up.
Replacing a single antenna is a much simpler task than installing a 8-10 meter section of antennas.

We'll see soon enough...

It's most likely Japanese Plum. It's indeed too early for the Sakura, especially with the cold weather recently.

江戸の浮世絵に「東京スカイツリー」

江戸時代の浮世絵師が「東京スカイツリー」を予知していた…かどうかは分からないが、
驚くことに、来春開業の電波塔にそっくりの“謎の塔”が、隅田川を描いた風景画に残されていた。
作者は、大胆な構図や奇抜な発想で人気の浮世絵師歌川国芳(一七九七年~一八六一年)。
百八十年前の空の下にそそり立つ尖塔(せんとう)のミステリーを追った。
