Hello!

I’m Masayo, Tokyo Guided Tour planner.

I introduce where to explore with family members in Tokyo.

Today‘s target is…..TOKYO SKY TREE!

 

What’s TOKYO SKY TREE?

Tokyo Sky Tree was opened in as a free-standing broadcasting tower in 2012.

Before it was built, Tokyo Tower played the role of a communications tower.

However, a lot of skyscrapers were built, it is no longer enough high as a communications tower.

 

We need higher tower.

 

That’s why Tokyo Sky Tree which is the tallest tower in the world appeared in the sky of Tokyo.

It is 634 meters high.

“634” is pronounced “MUSASHI” in Japanese, which is the same sound as the old name of this area.

 

But is it safe?

Japan is an earthquake-prone country.

Of course, Tokyo is sometimes suffered from earthquakes.

Won’t it collapse in case of earthquakes?

 

You don’t need to worry about it.

 

Do you know Japan has had technique of the earthquake-proof construction since the ancient times?

In fact the structure of Tokyo Sky Tree is the same as that of five-storied pagodas.

浅草寺五重塔

It is true that most five-storied pagodas remain even great earthquakes happen.

Why?

A five-storied pagoda has a “Shinbashira”.

It is a central pillar at the core.

Due to Shinbashira five-stried pagodas rarely topple during earthquakes.

A central feature of Tokyo Sky Tree is a system to control swaying.

It is the same system as “shinbashira”used at the core of traditional five-storied pagodas.
