【英語】 Which tower do you prefer? The “Tokyo Tower” with more history or the new “Tokyo Skytree”?

During your Tokyo stay, a visit at least to one of the two landmark towers in Tokyo – the Tokyo Tower and the new Tokyo Skytree – is very much recommended. 
東京来訪の際は是非訪れてみたい東京の新旧ランドマークタワー -東京タワーと東京スカイツリー。

 

The Tokyo Tower is a television broadcasting tower with the height of 333 meters, located in Minato, Tokyo. It was built in 1958, modeled after the Eiffel Tower of Paris, and served the function for over 50 years. In 2012, the main broadcasting function was switched to the Tokyo Skytree after its completion, since the Tokyo Tower height was not enough to adequately support digital broadcasting to the intended area. Now it serves as the backup.

東京タワーは港区立地の333mの放送用電波塔です。パリのエッフェル塔をモデルに1958年に建設されました。デジタル放送電波の送信に高さが不十分だったことから、2012年に電波塔としての役割は東京スカイツリーに取って代わられ、現在はバックアップとしての機能を果たしています。

 

It is a symbol for Japan’s rebirth after the World War as a major economic power, and has now become a part of Tokyo landscape. In 2013 it was registered as Registered Tangible Cultural Property.
戦後日本の復興、高度成長の象徴であり、また今や東京の風景の一部となっていて、2013 年に登録有形文化財に登録されています。

 

It holds two observation decks at 150 and 250 meters. It attracts around 3 million visitors per year even now, and the total number of tourists has reached 170 million.

 The Tokyo Skytree is a new television broadcasting tower located near Asakusa area,opened in 2012. It is a tallest structure in Japan with the height of 634 meters. Its height 634 can be read as “Musashi” in Japanese, which is a historic name of the Tokyo Region.
東京スカイツリーは墨田区に2012に建設された新しい電波塔です。高さ634mで、日本で一番高い建造物です。

 

The Tower provides digital television broadcasting coverage for the “Kanto” region, taking over the function that Tokyo Tower has supported for many years. The tower’s special tripod structure with various other advanced mechanism provides the tower with extremely strong resistance to earthquakes.

 長らく電波塔として役割を担ってきた東京タワーに代わり、関東全域へのデジタル放送の送信を行っています。三脚を応用した特殊な構造とその他多くの最新機構により、極めて高い耐震性をもちます。

 

The tower observation decks are located at heights 350 and 450 meters, which offer magnificent view of Tokyo and the surrounding area.
350mと450mに展望台があり、東京および周辺の素晴らしい眺めが楽しめます。

 

Observation decks are not the only way to enjoy these towers. Both towers put on gorgeous illuminations at night, which could be some of the most spectacular scenes of Tokyo!
