It's not the cherry blossom but the plum blossom that blooms around this time every year.


The LED lightning will again be turned on before the opening, on March 10 and March 11 the LEDs will be on in white on several points above the 125m. It will look like this:




The first day it's to commemorate the victims of the 10 March 1945 Great Tokyo Air Raid the 2nd day is for the victims of last years Tohoku earthquake and tsunami.

@Kimiwind1184
Imagine a construction start in 2028. Not that this is a bad location anyway, it's highly likely that it will become one tourist area together with Asakusa.

@erbse
Look at the previous page, not much has changed since last week.

More pictures for today.

The new Asakusa Culture and Tourist Information Center.

After a hard day of work the tower is now officially completed.

Sky Tree finished, ready for detailing

Tokyo Sky Tree, the world's tallest tower at 634 meters, was completed Wednesday afternoon, its builder, Obayashi Corp., said.

Tobu Tower Sky Tree Co., operator of the tower, located in Sumida Ward, plans a ceremony Friday to mark its completion. Construction began in July 2008.

Tokyo Sky Tree surpassed the 333-meter Tokyo Tower, in Minato Ward, in March 2010. Tokyo Sky Tree's final height was decided last March 18.

Now that the tower has been completed, the operator plans to finish the interior for stores and other facilities with an eye to opening them to the public on May 22.

Japan finishes Tokyo Sky Tree

Tokyo - Construction of the Tokyo Sky Tree, the world's tallest self-supporting communications tower, is set to finish on Wednesday, two months late because of the quake and tsunami that struck Japan last March.

"The construction was originally scheduled to finish in December 2011 but was delayed due to a shortage of supplies after the disaster," said a spokesperson for the operator, adding that the finished structure is sound.

Some 580 000 construction workers were engaged in the construction, which cost ¥65bn for the tower alone, the spokesperson said.
