Tokyo Skytree, High-rise Buildings, and Mt. Fuji

As one of the biggest megacities in the world, Tokyo has a wide range of functions. As a result, many high-rise buildings are concentrated in certain districts as people try to use limited land resources efficiently. Tokyo Skytree (634 m in height) also plays an important role on Tokyo's skyline now. The tower was completed and opened to the public in May 2012. Since then, it has become a symbolic landmark of Tokyo. We forecast that these artificial landscapes will continue to change through a process of progressive redevelopment. However, Mt. Fuji (UNESCO World Heritage site) will remain an indispensable and unchangeable element of Tokyo's landscape in the future.
