About New & Noteworthy in Tokyo
Tokyo is an 'ameoba', constantly moving and changing. Everytime you blink, something new happens, so it is important to get the most up-to-date information on what's going on. The two most significant recent developments are the result of some serious construction.
In May of 2012, the tallest tower in the world, the 634 meter Tokyo Sky Tree, opened to much fanfare. In addition to incredible views from the observatory, the complex contains branches of many of Tokyo's favorite eating establishments and is the absolute best place for buying inexpensive Japanese souvenirs.
Also, after three years of renovations, the Kabuki-za, Japan's premier venue for viewing the traditional art of Kabuki, re-opened in April 2013. To bring people 'back', many of the most popular Kabuki plays will be performed this year by Japan's top kabuki artists.
