Standing underneath Tokyo SkyTree,
standing underneath the new 634.0 meters needle into the Tokyo sky.
The height of 634 m was selected to be easily remembered. The figures 6 (mu), 3 (sa), 4 (shi) stand for "Musashi", an old name of the region where the Tokyo Skytree stands.
Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to climb the observation platform of Tokyo Skytree (minimum four hours of waiting time), but I had the luck to get sight on Tokyo's new landmark from different angle of views.
New and old Tokyo skycrapers.
Sensō-ji, the ancient Buddhist temple in Asakusa, with its five-story pagoda right of the Skytree in the background.
