Some funky pictures from the opening of the Tokyo Skytree: the world’s tallest broadcasting tower
The tower measures at 634 metres (2080 feet), and opened to the public on a grey, cloudy morning in Tokyo. Despite the weather, 8,000 visitors turned out to see the limited 360-degree views of the Japanese capital from two observation decks. Photos: Kimimasa Mayama/EPA, and Itsuo Inouye/AP
It’s 25:24, still in the office - and still feeling aftershocks. We are feeling rather sick, both from devastating news and dizziness of actual shaking. Odakyu line (departs from Shinjyuku and goes into Kanagawa) started running again, and will be running through the night, but some of us decided it’s better waiting until the sun is up; it’s cold outside, and we are not sure if we can get onto the train at all - it must be fully packed now, and might not be able to get on board.
