Tokyo Sky Tree
Although still under construction (only about halfway completed, but already attracting a lot of tourists and visitors), the Tokyo Sky Tree has been in the news recently as it has surpassed the Tokyo Tower as the tallest structure in Japan. Tokyo5 recently wrote about this milestone on his blog.
Construction of the tower is scheduled to be completed by December 2011 at a record height of 634 meters.
It is being built along the Sumida River, near Asakusa, where all of these pictures were taken.
A nice reflection from the golden Asahi Breweries office building.
