Informations

Tokyo Skytree (????????, T?ky? Sukaitsur?, stylized TOKYO SKYTREE) is a broadcasting and monitoring tower in Sumida, Tokyo. It became the tallest construction in Japan in 2010 and reached its full height of 634.0 meters (2,080 ft) in March 2011, making it the tallest tower in the world, displacing the Canton Tower, and the second tallest structure on earth following the Burj Khalifa (829.8 m/2,722 ft).The tower is your primary television and radio broadcast website for the Kant? region; the elderly Tokyo Tower no longer provides complete digital terrestrial television broadcasting protection because it is surrounded by high-rise buildings.



Skytree was completed on Leap Day, 29 February 2012, with the tower opening to the public on 22 May 2012. The tower is the centrepiece of a large business development financed by Tobu Railway (which owns the complex) and a group of six terrestrial broadcasters led by NHK. Trains stop at the adjacent Tokyo Skytree Station and nearby Oshiage Station. The complex is 7 km (4.3 mi) north-east of Tokyo Station.

The choir has the largest height to width ratio, 3.6:1, of any medieval church.Construction of Cologne Cathedral started in 1248 but was stopped in 1473, unfinished. Work did not restart until the 1840s, and the edifice was completed to its original plan in 1880. Cologne's medieval builders had planned a grand structure to house the reliquary of the 3 Kings and fit its function as a place of worship for the Holy Roman Emperor. Despite having been left incomplete during the medieval period, Cologne Cathedral eventually became unified as"a masterpiece of exceptional intrinsic value" and"a powerful testimony to the strength and persistence of Christian belief in medieval and modern Europe".
