Ooh, it's big...

The Tokyo Sky Tree is the World's tallest free standing tower, at 634 meters to its tip. It opened to the public on May 22nd. The highest elevation visitors can reach, is 450 meters, which seemed so high that it felt more like I was riding a helicopter, than standing in a tower.
We didn't go there because we are the touristy kind, but because it seemed like a fun thing to do for the annual gathering of friends from all over Japan. And I must honestly say, that if I didn't go then, I probably would never go. (well, maybe not "never," but...)
Anyway, it was great fun, and we had a blast.
