They are currently taking down the last crane.

The do it with the smaller crane that the last crane had lifted up last week. That crane will again be taken down with another smaller crane that again will be taken down with a smaller crane that is small enough to be taken down in parts in the elevator.

Just Google Translate this page and you know the details:

This tower incredibly dominates the skyline. Especially because of the fact that Tokyo has no supertalls.

Btw, the moon pics are awesome

A video taken on the Sky Tree during the big earthquake has come out in the news today.

Even though it's footage with a voice over and even background music it does show the scary moments on top.
