The Tokyo Skytree was completed in 2012 and is the world`s tallest free standing structure at 634 meters. Saying the number 634 in Japanese is phonetically similar to the traditional name of the area in which it is built, Musashi. Musashi is a name associated with many famous figures in Japanese history. It is a number that connects it with the local area and also makes it easy to remember for people across Japan. There are two observation decks that you can visit, one at 350 meters and another at 450 meters from which you can enjoy the beautiful panoramic views of Tokyo and the old Musashi Province. The tower has become a popular tourist destination, but serves a very important purpose. The Skytree provides digital signals for the population of Tokyo, as buildings and skyscrapers began to make the Tokyo Tower signal height ineffectual. There are also office buildings, shops, and shopping areas to enjoy at the base of the tower at “Tokyo Skytree Town.” Make sure to check it out in the evening too when the Skytree is lit up in beautiful colors.
