About Tokyo Sky tree

The 6 broadcasting company wanted to have a new tower which has a height 600m and they produced a new project “Zaikyou 6 companies tower promotes project’’. The purpose of this project was as a result of the number of buildings increased which caused confusion of reception, that tower is the solution for that problem. Including the steel tower, the tower reaches 634m and it is the highest reception tower in the world.

This tower is going to be built as a digital broadcasting tower as the analog broadcasting will be finished because of the starting of One seg. Sky tree has 634m which could be read Mu(6) Sa(3) 4(shi) Musashi like a person’s name. It is easy to remember for Japanese people as the number sounds like a person’s name.

There is a building which is 1400m in height in Dubai, however, it hasn’t been completed yet and we don’t know when the construction starts again.
