The Purpose of this Exhibition

The building of the Tokyo Sky Tree(R) was a historic construction project、referred to by some as the greatest such project of the century. In order to convey the real picture of this project、those who designed and built the Tokyo Sky Tree participated in the planning of this exhibit、endowing it with passionate messages from the work site、valuable video recordings and other materials. Come and see the refined and comprehensive manufacturing culture and power that Japan is so proud of、including the trial and error process for the planning、design and construction phases、as well as the cutting-edge techniques and technology that were crucial for the actual construction.
