Tokyo Sky Tree Opens To Become World’s Second Tallest Building

Towering at an impressive 2,080 feet above sea level, the world’s second-tallest structure (just behind Dubai’s Burj Khalifa building) opened to the public on Tuesday. The Tokyo Sky Tree is now the world’s tallest broadcasting building and will offer its visitors a bird’s eye view of the world.

After four years in production, the tower opened for a sneak peak this past weekend allowing nearly 8,000 people, including Lady Gaga, a first chance to touch the sky on one of the two observation decks- one at 350 meters above sea level, and the second at 450 meters above sea level

The tower is operated by Tobu Railway and serves both as a broadcasting tower for radio and television, and a tourist attraction.
