Numerical Data

There are a variety of information sources for TOKYO SKYTREE.


This is the height at TOKYO SKYTREE’s highest point. When considering the height for a tower that was to be the world’s tallest tower and a symbol for the region, 634m was chosen. The number 634 is an easy number to remember as it can be read as “musashi,” which is a word that is very familiar to the Japanese. It is also reminiscent of the Musashi Province, which is the old name of the large region that encompassed part of Tokyo, Saitama, and Kanagawa.


This is the number of days from the start (7/14/2008) to the end (2/29/2012) of construction for TOKYO SKYTREE.
The 634 m peak was reached just one week after the Great East Japan Earthquake (March 18, 2011 at 1:34pm).
