|June 2011 (35.676 Degrees, 139.788 Degrees) Eitai Bridge|
Tokyo's Sky Tree Tower can be seen in the distance. This is one of Tokyo's most iconic structures, appearing in almost every photo along this portion of the Sumida River. Tokyo Sky Tree (東京スカイツリー Tōkyō Sukai Tsurī) is 2,080 ft tall, making it the tallest tower in the world and the second tallest structure (after Buri Khalifi at 2,723 ft).
This location used to be the mouth of the Sumida River before the many artificial islands effectively pushed Tokyo Bay farther downstream.
