I know there are a lot of other much higher quality photos out there of Tokyo Sky Tree but this was as close as I could get on my last trip. These photos are from the Kanto Bus on the Shuto expressway on the way to Narita. The zoom on the camera I was using was not working either. Oh well.
There has been much talk about the name of the new tower and I agree with most people in that I think the name is stupid. A tree in the sky? I don't know. Tokyo Sky Tree is already the tallest structure in Japan and it is only a little over half done. I've seen the progress from the same bus on my last three trips to Japan going back to last year. Pretty impressive looking tower.
