Skytree: The World's Tallest Tower

The Skytree broadcast tower in Tokyo is the world's tallest tower. It was carefully designed to withstand Japan's earthquakes and other natural disasters, and it gives a whole new look to the city's skyline.  

It towers above the surrounding buildings, more than double the height of its neighbors. In fact, there’s only one structure on Earth taller: Dubai’s Burj Khalifa. Completed on February 29, 2012 and opened to the public in May that year, the Tokyo Skytree broadcasting tower soars 2,080 feet (634 meters) into the sky, with the top sometimes obscured by clouds. Although it misses out on being the tallest structure in the world, the Tokyo Skytree can take comfort in the fact that it is the world’s tallest tower.
