Japan has Tokyo SKYTREE, the 2nd-highest building in the world, with 634m (2,080 ft) height following the highest building Burj Khalifa Tower in Dubai, UAE with 828m (2,722 ft.) Do you want to go to the top of the Sky Tree once? I usually see many people queuing up for going up on it, especially on weekends. But actually, international visitors can get the Fast Ticket which grants you admission by a shorter wait than the regular ticket.
