Tokyo Sky Tree, the tower and the features illustrated...



Tokyo Skytree 東京スカイツリー is a broadcasting, restaurant, and observation tower located in Sumida, Tokyo.   It  reached its full height of 634.0 metres (2,080 ft) in March 2011, making it the tallest tower in the world, and the second tallest structure in the world after Burj (829.8 m/2,722 ft).
You can ascend the tower by high speed elevators and reach two observation levels shown in the illustration.  The wait in line can be quite long, so reservations online are highly recommended.   Once you do reach the upper branches of the tree, the views are spectacular, and Mount Fuji looks larger than ever before!
