The year 2012 probably one of the greatest year for Japan because a human made wonder is finally done !! LADIES AND GENTLEMAN, IT IS THE TOKYO SKY TREE ^0^ Since the grand opening on 22nd of May, the tower and the shoppping area under it has been crowded by tourist!! My brother and I had a chance to see this 634m tall tower and was super amazed ! SPEECHLESS EVEN !!!
This tower in the TALLEST BROADCASTING TOWER in THE WORLD !!! Okay, some of you maybe don't get why do Japan need that super tall tower for broadcasting. As we all know, Japan has so many skyscrapers with over 200m tall, especially in Tokyo. In conclusion, it is super necessary to build a newer tower over 600m for broadcasting transmission purpose.
Now, it's time to climb the tree !!! OH !! WAIT !! We need a TICKET !! FYI guys, you have to reserve the ticket to climb the tower because it will be open for public on July 11th 2012. Until then, advance ticket is super needed. AND !! I DIDN'T KNOW IT UNTIL I GOT TO THE TOWER >.< My brother and I were super dissapointed and feel really hopeless that time. We still could buy some souveniers though. It was the only thing that we could do. HOWEVER, I guess that time an angel just passed by and listened to our dream of climbing this tower of dream and it happened !!! I was looking at Tokyo Sky Tree homepage and it was said that we could still buy the advance ticket at Tobu Travel Agent Office on the 5th floor of the building. We ran so fast to the office and WE GOT THE LAST " TICKETS FOR THE NEXT SUNDAY. My brother was still in Japan that day and our prayer was answered !!!! EXCITED. The price is a bit expensive (the entrance is supposed to be 2000 YEN) but we got many privileges ! Free train tickets and many more !!
THE DAY FINALLY COME !!!! It was a long way to reach the tree (from ASAKUSA there is a TOKYO SKY TREE LINE), but we were so happy because the train that we used was very cute !! It had the TOKYO SKY TREE MASCOT, SORAKARA chan !!!
As we arrived at the Tokyo Sky Tree Station, looked to the sky, and
We were just under it !!!! KYAAA !!!, LET'S REALLY CLIMB THE TREE NOW !!!!!
Now, Let's follow US !!
1. CHECKING IN, JUST LIKE IN A HOTEL

5. THE VIEW WAAAOWWW !!HEY, ISN'T THE ROUND WHITE BUILDING IS TOKYO DOME ???!! ^0^
The reachable height that people are allowed is on 350m high and 450m. To reach the 450m floor, we need to buy extra ticket and it costs around 1500YEN. From Doitsu Panda, that floor is オススメ ！！！！！The view was so much different and you might feel a much greater sensastion NEAR THE CLOUD ! Because Doitsu Panda loves to take picture, there was a photobooth on each floors (350m and 450m) that you should try !!!

Dear my readers, when you have time to visit Tokyo, visit this incredible tree !!! Don't be afraid to visit Tokyo Sky Tree, eventhough there is an earthquake while you are in it, this tower is supported by the Japanese building technology !! That will be quite unfortunate if that happen >.< but I wish you a pleasant experience while climbing it !!!! ^0^
