As seen in the video in the previous post the LED Lighting has been tested the last couple of nights. Every night a couple of different elements of the final lighting scheme that will come on from the opening in May.

Hiragana is what it considered the base Japanese characters. It's kind of like the Japanese alphabet with 48 characters that can form all Japanese words.

Katakana is a simplified version of the Hiragana, mostly used to write foreign words in Japanese.

Kanji are the Chinese characters that are used in Japanese. Since they are Chinese every character is a word, most names are also written in Kanji.

That's truly awesome such a fascinating culture you got there. That means you would normally expect the name "sky tree" to be written in Katakana instead of Hiragana, I need to visit Japan!

Tokyo Sky Tree releases individual bookings
Published: Friday, Mar. 23, 2012

TOKYO - Individual ticket reservations for the Tokyo Sky Tree, the world's tallest free-standing tower, which will open to the public in two months, became available on Thursday.

About 8,000 people can visit the tower in Sumida Ward, Tokyo, each day.

full article:
http://www.sacbee.com/2012/03/23/436...ndividual.html
Today the results of this lottery were in.
http://hochi.yomiuri.co.jp/topics/ne...OHT1T00117.htm (in Japanese).

For the 05/22 ~ 05/28 period 22.912 people have been elected out of a total of 139.831 applicants. (Taking into account that group reservations have already been open for quite some time and amount to more then half of the 8,000 daily visitors).

For the 1st day there were even x335 more applications then tickets.

The group bookings are also fully booked until September, there won't be any quit moments to go up the tower this summer.


Fr everyone that is visiting Tokyo in the next few months. If you want to go up the tower you have to know that the entrance tickets up to 10 July are reservation only.
They are only sold in advance from the Tobu Travel Box Office or via the special website:
http://ticket.tokyo-skytree.jp/ (Japanese only)

From 11 July individual tickets will be sold at the tower, expect it to be very busy for the following weeks.

Sky Tree to offer world's highest bungee jump

By MARK SCHREIBER
Tokyo's newest and biggest visitor attraction, the 634-meter-high Tokyo Sky Tree in Sumida Ward, will open to the public on May 22. And if 11th-hour contract negotiations bear fruit, visitors to the Sky Tree may soon have the opportunity to plummet 430 meters (over 1,400 feet) toward terra firma, in what is claimed to be the world's highest commercial bungee jump.


Falling for it: While shooting the Tokyo Sky Tree at night, Japan Times photographer Yoshiaki Miura captured a test jump for the planned Big Bungee Banzai attraction. YOSHIAKI MIURA
The new service, it was learned, has been quietly undergoing safety tests late at night. If arrangements can be finalized within this month, the first customers may be able to take death-defying dives from the Sky Tree from around mid-June.

The jump was discovered after being inadvertently photographed by The Japan Times' sharp-eyed senior cameraman, Yoshiaki Miura, who was in the neighborhood shooting night exposures of the new tower.
The Japan Times ran this Tokyo Sky Tree story on April Fool's day:

Thank you for the pictures. The light previews make me even more impatient and the buidling itself more interesting.
Great work with this stunning construction

I didn't knew it was finished. It actually surprises me that the top ended up looking like this.
It looks like it now is in a permanent state of beeing unfinished.

For some reason the tower fits in perfectly with those pink trees.
