Hopefully I'll be visiting Japan, namely Tokyo next year. If I do, I can't wait to check this out. That aerial shot is incredible. I didn't realise it spread so far and was so dense!

Last weekend the railway station next to the Sky Tree was christened "Tokyo Skytree Station"

Interestingly enough the name in Japanese is written out in Hiragana (Tokyo), Katakana (Sky Tree) and Kanji (Station = Eki).

とうきょうスカイツリー駅

Commemoration tickets.

The bus stop was also renamed, although they just romanized all the characters of the name of the station. With the result that Sky Tree is written as Sukaitsuri.

The city has also changed the road signing with directions to the Sky Tree.

Station name signs on the Tōbu lines are normally written in hiragana (and in this case katakana) with kanji underneath.
