Tokyo Sky Tree is world’s tallest tower

The Tokyo Sky Tree, which is still under construction, has surpassed China’s Canton Tower (600m) as the world’s tallest tower on March 1.

Asahi News records the feat on a very hazy day…

The Tokyo Sky Tree will reach 634m when it’s completed. It’s still not the world’s tallest structure, as the title goes to Burj Khalifa in UAE.
