Stupendous views from the Tokyo Skytree in the most seismically active city in the world. This is the world's tallest free-standing broadcasting tower at 634 meters, and was entered into the Guinness Book of Records as the world's tallest tower on November 17, 2011. 

The Japanese city of Tokyo has long been known for its spectacular skyscrapers, and now a new structure has taken its place in the skyline, the Tokyo Skytree. Built to broadcast television signals, it is not quite as big as the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the world's tallest building, but it does have a place in the record books as the tallest free standing tower.
