Tokyo Skytree Celebrates 5 Years

Today, the Tokyo Skytree tower celebrates its fifth anniversary.

From The Japan Times:
Tokyo Skytree, the world’s tallest broadcasting tower, marked its fifth anniversary on Monday. 
As of March, about 26 million people had visited the popular landmark, which is surrounded by the Tokyo Solamachi commercial complex, and around 180 million had visited the entire site, according to the public affairs office of Tokyo Skytree Town.

I visited the Skytree twice. The first was in 2014, but I didn't go up to the observation deck. Then, in 2015, I went up to one of its two observation decks. The views were spectacular.
