It's actually a replica of the Statue of Liberty that stands on Île aux Cygnes in Paris. The original statue stood in Tokyo for a year in 1998~1999, it was so popular that they decided to place replica on the same spot. You can tell by the inscriptions on the tablet, it has the dates of the American independence day and the French National Day just like the statue in Paris.

There was no techinical reason to do it. Was it done to make it taller then the Shanghai Tower? If that was the reason it will never be officially confirmed, if you know what I mean...

Bandai To Sell Tokyo Sky Tree Models In October
http://e.nikkei.com/e/fr/tnks/Nni201...HH501.htm?ep=1

Quote:
TOKYO (Nikkei)--Toymaker Bandai Co. said Wednesday it will begin selling Tokyo Sky Tree plastic models on Oct. 29.

Tokyo Sky Tree is 634m tall, making it the world's tallest free-standing communications tower. It is scheduled open May 22. The 1/700 scale model is 90.5cm tall.

The model is made up of 169 plastic parts and replicates Sky Tree's complex steel frame structure in great detail. The model's antenna at the top closely resembles the actual antenna. Bandai got computer graphics data from Sky Tree's architectural design company, but decided to photograph the antenna section from a helicopter to get a better idea of what it looks like
