I'll try and get over to Tokyo to see TST sometime over the next 12 months. Way too busy this year.

Nice that Tokyo finally has an international standard landmark other than that hideous Tokyo tower.

Holy crap. Momo and Nihonkitty - your images are beyond breathtaking, they're straight out of some science fiction dream. Would you allow me to post them elsewhere as examples of modern cities?

I'm gonna buy this book

Picture book about creators of Tokyo Sky Tree to be published
http://english.kyodonews.jp/news/2011/09/114260.html
Quote:
TOKYO Work is underway on a picture book showing how people doing at least 12 different jobs contributed to the construction of Tokyo Sky Tree, the world's tallest self-standing tower scheduled to open for visitors next May in Tokyo's Sumida Ward.

The book tentatively titled ''Tokyo Sky Tree wo Tsukuru'' (meaning ''Creating Tokyo Sky Tree'') will be published next spring, and edited for both children and adults, according to its publisher Bronze Publishing Inc.

The book will feature at least 12 jobs include building planner, construction site supervisor, scaffolding man, land surveyor, crane operator, lighting designer and local retail store owner.

The book's writer and illustrator Noritake Suzuki, 36, portrays those creators based on interviews and photographs at some 30 workplaces he has visited over the past two years.

''He has recorded the details about how they work by taking 100 to 200 pictures at each place,'' said book editor Atsuko Okimoto.

''I would like to convey to readers the essential pleasure in working by closely depicting the professionalism, teamwork, passion and pride of such 'common people','' Suzuki said.

It's simply tall, but not specifically super tall.

The only really thing that makes you feel that it's very tall is all the places in Tokyo where you suddenly see the Sky Tree just popping up between the buildings. You don't have that as widespread with the Tokyo Tower.
For me everything gives me a small impression i work near the Chrysler building and every day i walk by it i seems small to me but compare to the sky tree Chrysler is half the sky tree size,to change the subject i have a lot of respect for the city Tokyo, in my opinion Tokyo is to me is one of the big three cities in the world the others being new York and London and Tokyo proves you don't need a impressive sky line to be a great city.

Guys, I'm been checking several pages but couldn't find any news on the lightning system that has been mentioned a while ago.

Could somebody be so nice to tell me when it's going to be working? We'll have to wait till the next may opening or we'll see it sooner?

Thanks.

One more : again thanks momo for YEARS of great pictures!
