Whats the closest tower for viewing the Sky Tree? Bunkyo Civic Center? Or perhaps the St Luke's?

The Bunko Civic Center is closer, the Marunouchi building is about same distance but the view will probably be blocked by the other buildings around the station.

Japan played against Holland in a friendly football match. And they were talking about Japan, that it always wants to be the best at everything, and lol here it comes: they were planning on building a tower of possibly more than 500 meters, meaning the Tokyo Tower. Lol people are so misinformed and not up-to-date about skyscrapers. See it everytime again, especially with the Burj Dubai. Most people don't even know yet it's getting build, they still think Eiffel Tower is the highest in the world lol.

Lol. Well most people know that the eiffel tower is not the highest in the world of course because most people travel a lot outside Holland and see higher buildings. I was in Shanghai last month and it was crowded with dutch people. But I have to agree that, even when dutch people are very well aware of news and the world (that's what the Lonely Planet says about Holland) most of them don't know anything about skyscrapers and have no idea how high something is. Some people think the highest building in Holland is 300 meters () only because they have absolutely no sense for scale and heights.

( and I still think that the whole of Asia is still seen by many people as a "far from my bed show". Most news you see here about, for exampe, China is about the problems or the economy. )

from the 38th floor


from the 12th floor

Taken from the East Core Hikifune, a just completed 135.07m, 41 stories tall 'public housing' tower in Sumida-ku.



View in the other direction:


bluestyle.livedoor.biz/

I wouldn't mind living there.
http://blog.japantimes.co.jp/yen-for...ublic-housing/

Quote:
In terms of location, East Core is quite desirable: the Tobu Isezaki line and the Hanzomon and Asakusa Subway lines are within walking distance, and Asakusa is about a 20-minute stroll over the Sumida River to the west. However, the main logistical attraction has more to do with aesthetics: the Tokyo Sky Tree is being built only a couple of blocks away. In case you don’t know, Tokyo Sky Tree will replace Tokyo Tower as the city’s main broadcasting relay tower, and is much higher. Just as a view of Tokyo Tower boosts the price of a central Tokyo property, a view of the Sky Tree will make those who can afford one the envy of all their neighbors in the homier Shitamachi district.

And one thing we discovered right away is that if you have a unit on the south or west side of East Core — meaning the sides with a view of the Sky Tree you will pay considerably more. But the uniformed middle aged women who acted as guides for the open house were quick to point out that units on the north side would also have a nice view of the famous Sumida River fireworks. Given how often this information was delivered, it was obviously a bullet point in the manual.
Although it has to be said that a view of the Sky Tree also means a view over the cities skyline.

Looks like the cranes will be jumping shortly. The progress of the Sky Tree is amazing! Anyone have an idea as to how many meters it will be before the end of the year?

The cranes won't jump this week, watch out for it next week.

And if the tower continues to grow 30 meters every month then it could reach 240 meters in December.

9/7 update

I am currently in Tokyo on business and had a chance to catch the Hanzomon subway down to Oshiage to take the following pics. Looks like the tower is about 200m now and workers were really moving about even at 5pm.

Sorry, just realized that I don't have URL for pics, just raw digital camera pics. Anybody know how I can post them directly??

Yes, simply upload your photos from your camera on to your computer, next your going to want to upload your pictures to either photobucket.com or flikr.com from there you can take the IMG URL and copy and past it to this site.
