Tokyo Sky tree 634 meters in hight

The second highest tower in the world is under construction.
The tower is located in Sumida-ku Tokyo where is an old traditional district.
The tower makes use of advanced structural design technology that can withstand very strong earthquakes and catastrophic storms as may be encounterd once in 500 years.
I am impressed by the technology which was inspired by a five-storey pagoda temple which was built more than 1,000 years ago.
I took this picture last November.
The tower will be finished in the spring of 2012. When this tower is completed,many people can watch much more clear TV pictures with digital signals broadcasting from the tower
Many Japanese and the people from overseas come to see the tower now.
I think that this area will become famous tourist spot.
