Built in 2012, the Skytree has already become famous as the world’s tallest TV tower, which height reaches 634 meters. The design was inspired by traditional Japanese architecture, featuring numerous concave and convex curves. Triangular in cross-section at the base, the tower becomes progressively more circular as it rises – this helps to reduce shadows and allows to withstand very strong wind.
The first floors are occupied by numerous shops and restaurants, an aquarium and theatre. And, of course, there is an observation deck at a height of 350 and 450 meters.
