I was astonished at a plenty of crowd of people coming and going at many station. So it means after all everything concentrates in the capital, I wonder?
Anyway, it's exciting city.
The restoration of the original was completed last year.
This is the highest radio wave tower in the world. It's as high as 634meters.
This has a deck at around 350meters in height and a galleria at around 450meters in height. Viewing from there, I could see how many houses or buildings closely filled on the ground and was surprised. But green of parks made me relief.
I could see Sumida- river flows to Tokyo- bay or shadows of high buildings in the distance.
I also saw a part of the silhouette of Mt.Fuji in the cloud of orange color but it was disappeared by cloud soon.
According to a leaflet, this skytree was constructed by applying Japan's old skill like used in five-storied pagoda or the high technology. 2523 stairs for flee is built in the center of it .
Indeed, Skytree is so high(634m) that I can't take its gallant figure without being the separate from it.

|Silhouette of high buildings of around 新宿（Sinjyuku) is seen from Skytree.|

In 1964, Tokyo Olympic was held in this National Stadium.
It was fine weather, so blue sky. Though I was a girl on the day, I remember the moment of the lightning at this Olympic flame holder on the TV.
This National Stadium is rebuilt for the Tokyo Olympics in 2020. The design of the New National Stadium was raised in public and already Zaha Hadid Architects was chosen. It's a form like a spaceship.
|The soccer game was being held and that flame holder(upper right-hand) was being lighted.|
