New high tower in Tokyo - level 2
This is the tallest tower in the world. Its name is Tokyo Skytree. It was built in a country which lies in the place with a lot of earthquakes. The building is special. It will stand after a big earthquake and it is safe.
People were building the tower for 4 years and it is 634 metres high. It will be used as a television and communication tower.
The tower was opened on Tuesday. A lot of people wanted to get the tickets for the opening. Some waited one week for the tickets, but the sky was full of clouds on Tuesday. They weren’t very lucky.
The tower is the highest tower in the world, but the highest building in the world is still Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, which has 828 metres. Burj Khalifa is not a tower. It is a skyscraper.
