Japan is a leader in innovation in making the first transition from analog TV to digital TV system. To so, it initiated the creation of a new tower to provide a signal that was higher than the tallest skyscraper in Tokyo, which would also serve as a cell phone signal tower as well. The Japanese government began to build Tokyo Skytree in 2008 and completed in 2011. It was opened to the general public on May 22, 2012.
There are two viewing points in Tokyo Skytree on two different levels at a height of 350 meters and a height of 450 meters. The elevator shuttle called Tembo Shuttle, has a top speed of 600 meters per minute and can carry up to 40 people per round.

The building is structured in the stupa shape of ancient Japan.
