Opened in 2012, Tokyo Skytree is a broadcast and observation tower that upon completion instantly became a new symbol for the city of Tokyo, Japan. At 634 metres tall, Tokyo Skytree not only towers above every other structure in Tokyo, it is 2nd in height only to the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, and is twice as tall as the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
Tokyo Skytree features two observation decks, the main Tembo Gallery (350 metres) and the top deck Tembo Galleria (450 metres). While the iconic Tokyo Tower offers better views of central Tokyo, the height of Tokyo Skytree offers an unreal, and arguably more dramatic vantage point of the world's largest city.
