After a long day of class Katie and I headed out to the Tokyo Sky Tree, the tallest building in the world. We got there around 8, ate dinner really quick and then headed over to get tickets to go up. It’s around $20 to head up to the first level, 350M and another $10 to go to the next viewing deck. Besides offering one the tallest building in the world, Sky Tree has a lot of gift shop to offer and shopping. As well as an Aquarium and many other sweet shops and restaurants. It’s a great place to go for souvenirs, even if you don’t intend to go up the Sky Tree. We went at the end of the of the night too, so there was no line, it was great; I recommend going early in the morning or late at night to avoid the usual 2 hour line. We got in the elevator and it was a very smooth ride, you could hardly tell you were moving, except the ears popping from the pressure gave it away. It takes less than a minute to get up there, with a peak speed of 600 M/Sec. We arrived at the top and immediately saw a spectacular view. Here is a cool 360 Panorama of the view we had Tokyo Sky Tree 360 Panorama You could see all of Tokyo, I didn’t realize how massive Tokyo was until I was up there; you couldn’t even see the edge of the city from that high up. They also had the cool large touchscreen panel with a panorama from where you were at. It had a history view, night, and day view of the city; you used a magnify glass tool to compare the day to night view. It was definitely worth the trip we both really enjoyed the view.
