Tokyo Skytree Tour

Want a sky view of Tokyo? Tokyo Skytree Tour 4K (東京スカイツリー ツアー)


Tokyo Skytree (東京スカイツリー ツアー) is a tower for TV broadcasting and a Tokyo landmark. Tokyo Skytree is the tallest building in Japan with a height of 634 metres. At its base stands a large shopping centre with an aquarium. A bluish-white colour called aijiro is painted on the outside and is officially called "Skytree White". Tokyo Skytree mirrors Japan's historic 5-storey pagoda design. From a height of about 350 metres and above, the framework of the tower is cylindrical to provide panoramic views of the river and the city. The upper observatory features a spiral skywalk paved with glass, where visitors climb the last 5 metres to the highest point on the upper platform. A glass flooring portion provides tourists with a direct downward view of the streets below. Tokyo Skytree, with a central shaft made of reinforced concrete, has seismic proofing. For the first 125 metres above ground, the principal internal pillar is connected to the outer tower framework. From there, the pillar is attached to the tower frame with oil dampers which act as cushions during an earthquake up to 375 metres.
