Tokyo SkyTree is to grand open tomorrow May 22nd, and today as its eve, “Tokyo Solamachi”(/Tokyo Sky town) is pre-open to press (official grand opening will be on tomorrow with SkyTree).

Solamachi(http://www.tokyo-solamachi.jp/english/) is a huge commercial complex that binds Tokyo SkyTree station and Oshiage area with 400m long (east-west) and  size of 3.69ha including  various shopping malls on the foot of SkyTree. The facility contains 312 stores or restaurants, aquarium, a bird- eye- view observatory, planetarium and other stuff to attract visitors including those from overseas.

In Tokyo we were able to observe a historic golden ring solar eclipse for the first time in 173 years (The next occasion will come in about 300 years in East Japan region) in this morning (around 7:23 for about 2 hours or so). Therefore, a lot of people observed the eclipse many of whom did near Tokyo SkyTree and Solamachi as they wanted to take photos of the phenomenon and the Tree at the same time on the “very eve” of its grand opening, which is a miraculously rare.

Solamachi consists of three parts,namely,  East Yard, West Yard, and Tower Yard, with  SkyTree central of them.All those entertainment facilities are targetted to draw a lot of visitors ,and Solamachi is strongly expected to become a new most attractive tourists’ destinations in Sumida-ward,Tokyo, and Japan.
