Tokyo Skytree is one of the most popular sightseeing spots in Tokyo. The main attractions of Tokyo Skytree are two observation decks which offer spectacular 360 degree panoramic views of the whole Tokyo and neighboring prefectures from all of its floors.
Analog broadcasting ended in 2011, and a complete transition was made to Digital Terrestrial Television broadcasting. Five commercial TV stations as well as NHK utilize the new tower to broadcast digital TV from a height of around 600 meters. Tokyo Skytree replaced the 333-meter-tall Tokyo Tower as a symbol of Japan's capital.
Tokyo Skytree employs cutting-edge Japanese technology to reproduce the traditional architectural know-how of the Shinbashira" (Central Column Vibration Control for mitigation of seismic motion) used in a five story pagoda. The walls of the building were intentionally made flexible so the building would sway gently and release the energy of any earthquake.
Drawing international attention, Tokyo Skytree debuted as the tallest freestanding tower in the world. The tower surely provides an invaluable opportunity to introduce the culture and technology of Japan to people from around the world.
Asakusa is a famous sightseeing spot in Tokyo, which is reminiscent of the Edo period.
This district, Asakusa has been flourishing as a temple town of Senso-ji, the oldest and the largest temple in Tokyo. Kaminarimon, or "Thunder Gate", the outer gate of the temple is very famous as landmark of Asakusa for its huge vermilion lantern. Both domestic and foreign tourists flock to this venerable temple and the shopping arcade called ”Nakamise” in the compound, the best place to buy traditional Japanese souvenirs in Tokyo. In present days about 30 million worshipers visit there annually and became the center of demotic public religious faith/Belief. Asakusa is a town filled with the atmosphere of Shitamachi (the traditional shopping, entertainment and residential districts of Tokyo).
