Walk – Asahi Building & Tokyo Skytree
While on top of the observation deck at Asakusa Culture Tourist Information Center we decided to walk over to the Tokyo Skytree (19 minutes walk). Along the way we also passed by the famous Asahi Building known for its large, gold sculpture on its roof.
Located in Sumida, the Tokyo Skytree is an actual broadcasting and observation tower and is the tallest tower in the world (634 m/2,080 ft), and the second tallest structure in the world after the Burj Khalifa (829 m/2,722 ft). It was a bit cloudy so we did not go up in the tower but we did walk around the huge shopping complex (Tokyo Solamachi) at the base of the tower.
