This is the world’s tallest tower – 2,080ft. It is a new digital broadcast tower to mark the age of the digital age to over shadow the video age. It’s situated in the Sumida Ward, but a walk away from Asakusa. My friend Anna’s afraid of heights so this was pretty funny for me.
I’ve been up a lot of tall buildings now but there’s something different about The Sky Tree. The energy is very different and people generally seem more excited. You can catch a view of Mt. Fuji on a clear day and if you time it right – you can catch both day time & sun down. The view of Kanto is spectacular.
