After four years of construction and spending nearly 65 billion yen, Tokyo's new landmark the Skytree opened to the public. The tower was built by Japan's Tobu Railway Co. and it stands at 2080 feet tall, making it the world's second tallest building. Tokyo Skytree is now the world's tallest freestanding broadcast tower. Only 8,000 people who reserved the first-day admissions pass were able to see the amazing view from the observation deck, despite cloudy weather. The operator of Tokyo Skytree said they expect to draw 32 million visitors in the first year, surpassing the annual visitor ship at Tokyo Disney Resort. The Skytree will generate no doubt a surge in tourism of Tokyo.
