The world's tallest electric wave tower

The Tokyo Sky Tree is an immensely tall tower located in Tokyo's Sumida area. It is 634m in height overall and there is an observation deck at 350m, the Tembo Deck, where you can ride via the Skyward Eye tube up to the Tembo Galleria at 450m. You can ride a shuttle up to the Tembo Deck from the 4th floor. The deck is divided into 3 different sections at floors 340, 345, and 350, floor 340 is partially glass and you can see down 350m beneath you. There are restaurants and souvenir shops on 345, and on 350 you'll find cafes and the ticket counter for the Skyward Eye tube, and there's also a bird's-eye-view drawn from the Edo Era, and a touchscreen Tokyo navigator. These floors have large windows so you can see almost 70km away in the distance and enjoy the wide open views.

From floor 350 you can ride the Skyward Eye shuttle to the Skyward Eye corridor. The Skyward Eye corridor is split into two floor layers at 445 and 450, and you can walk up a slope from 445 to 450. The corridor wall is fully glass and you will feel like you are floating in the air. On floor 450 there is the "Sorakara Point" which is the highest you can go, it is made of light and glass and gives it a very mysterious feeling.
