21. apríl – Tokyo Skytree

Image

EN: Two days after my Anime mission we (me and my friend) decided to visit the second tallest structure (and the tallest tower) in the world – Tokyo Skytree. With its height of 634 meters it’s pretty impressive and it can be seen from very long distance, it belongs to one of the most popular tourist spots in Tokyo. The weather was not very nice, but nevertheless we were a bit lucky, as until we hit the top of the tower, the clouds were gone and the view was impressive. There are two observatories, the first one in the height of 350m, which has the capacity of approximately 2000 people (and therefore it was rather busy), the other one is 100m higher. The entry to both observatories costs around 2000 yen, which is even cheaper than the entry ticket to London’s Shard. But if you are planning some high-quality panoramic pictures, you will be disappointed, the design of windows is not very smart (but it’s most probably because of frequent earthquakes and security), so it’s virtually impossible to take a proper picture. Well, the views were nice anyway, the pics below were taken either with my Pentax or my phone, so nothing fancy. Skytree is without a doubt a must-see sight, you can at least tell everyone that you were there…

SK: V pondelok ma čakala návšteva druhej najvyššej budovy sveta, teda Tokyo Skytree. Počasie nám veľmi neprialo, hoci predtým, ako sme sa vyviezli hore, to bolo oveľa horšie – zdola totiž vôbec nebolo vidno vrchol veže a to znamenalo, že výhľad z plošín ponúkal akurát tak rôzne typy oblačnosti. Našťastie pre nás sa počasie trochu umúdrilo a bolo vidno aspoň niečo. Návštevníci majú k dispozícii dve vyhliadkové plošiny, jednu vo výške 350 metrov, ktorá má kapacitu asi 2000 ľudí (a z toho dôvodu bola značne rušná), tá ďalšia je o 100 metrov vyššie a lístok do nej si musíte kúpiť v tej nižšie umiestnenej. Celkové vstupné tak na jedného dospelého človeka vyjde na asi 2000 yenov (vďaka, Martina), čo síce stojí za to, no ak sa tešíte na fotografie, musím vás sklamať. Horná plošina je totiž navrhnutá s malými oknami, ktoré sú okrem toho v istej vzdialenosti od návštevníkov a tvoria akýsi polkruh, takže spraviť nejakú zmysluplnú fotku je prakticky nemožné. Výhľad bol skvelý, určite by bol lepší za jasného dňa, no aj tak to stálo za to. Fotky sú kombinované z Pentaxu a z môjho telefónu, ich kvalita je pochybná.
