Tokyo’s Skytree

By Linda Tancs

The world record books show no shortage of tallest skywalks.  Add another to the list.  Tokyo’s Skytree is the world’s tallest freestanding broadcasting tower, a white neo-futuristic space needle piercing 634 meters into the sky.  Its Tembo Deck at 350 meters is covered in huge five-meter-high glass for a 360-degree view up to 70 kilometers away.  From there, a ride in a glass tube to the Tembo Galleria at 450 meters completes the skywalking experience.
