The view from the top: The world's tallest tower and Japan's biggest new landmark, the Tokyo Skytree, opened to the public on May 22. Here is a breathtaking tour of the tower.
Nearly 8,000 visitors were expected to take high-speed elevators up to the observation decks of the 634-metre tower to mark its opening.
Some reportedly waited in line more than a week to get the coveted tickets for a panoramic view, though May 22 ended up being cloudy in Tokyo.
Skytree is recognised by Guinness World Records as the tallest tower.
It beat out the Canton Tower in China, which is 600 metres.
