New Tokyo tower named: Tokyo Sky Tree 東京スカイツリー 

The new name of the “New Tokyo Tower” has been decided.
The new name (which I think sounds cheezier than cheeze) is Tokyo Sky Tree. 東京スカイツリー

WTF?
Just name the damn thing Sumida Tower. Other names that were suggested were Mirai Tower (which means Future tower) are a lot better sounding than jingle bells and Tokyo Sky Tree.

The Tower is set to be completed and open in Spring 2012.  平成24年春に完成の予定です。 It will be over 600 metres tall.

Anyway, thought that was some funny news I heard today.

  1. I just wrote a blog about the Tokyo Sky Tree, too.

    I also dislike that name (but I think the tower looks nicer than the Tokyo Tower).
