Today, the world’s tallest tower is open for the public.

The tower is located in Tokyo, Japan and was named Tokyo Skytree.

It is about 634 meters or 2080 feet tall.

The second tallest was Canton Tower in China which is about 600 meters or 1,968 1/2 feet tall.

The world’s tallest structure is Dubai’s Burj Khalifa which is 828 meters tall.

But, Burj Khalifa is a skyscraper and not a tower.

The Skytree will serve as a broadcasting tower for television and radio.

It is a very beautiful building.
