Sky Tree and Sun Beams Doug Reports Posted on November 12, 2012 by dougNovember 12, 2012 Facebook Twitter Reddit Linkedin EmailShare this...Near the end of my bike ride, the Sky Tree as the sky clears and sun beams shine through.
Nice! What is the “Sky Tree?”
Nancy, the Sky Tree is the tallest tower in the world, just finished this May to handle all the digital broadcasting going on now.

Oh, I see! Taller than the Sears Tower?
Oh, yes. The Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower) is just 527 m in height.
The Sky Tree is 634 m tall.
The 634 number is intentional. In Japanese, it sounds like “mu sa shi” and Musashi is an old name for the Tokyo area.
Wow! That’s cool!
