TokyoSkytree is a second symbol of Tokyo built in 2012 as instead of TokyoTower. It’s placed at Sumida-ku, a small town in Tokyo. You can see this white 634m(approximately 2080.05 ft) high tower from everywhere at Sumida. It’s listed in Guinness World Records as World’s Highest Tower in 2011. The amount of who have gone up the observation deck reached 13,130,000 people on 30 June 2014.
Tokyo Solamachi, which means the town in the sky, is a shopping mall surrounding TokyoSkytree. There are 312 shops(including 17 tax-free shops), a planetarium and an aquarium in it. I think TokyoSkytree is one of the hottest spot in Tokyo. You can see many foreign tourists everyday, of course there are cute Japnese girls from country side of Japan too.
