Skytree

Tokyo Skytree was built for digital broadcasting which covers all Tokyo and its suburb area, and is the tallest tower in the world so far.

It has observation decks at 350m and 450m height, although it requires 3,500 Yen for the top floor.

And a huge, or I should say long, shopping mall is on the bottom alongside the river. In this picture, you will notice the shape of the tower is not a simple corn shape. Yes, the cross-section of the tower forms a triangle on the ground and is gradually rounding to become circular at the obsevation deck.

It has a complicated structure to support heavy decks and broadcasting equipments high above, and to endure the possible strong wind or earthquake.
