300 Days Before Tokyo Sky Tree Opening

Against the backdrop of Tokyo Sky Tree, a trio of mascot characters poses with the countdown clock installed on the roof of a downtown Tokyo railroad station on Wednesday, July 27, 2011. It is just 300 days before the newest Tokyo landmark, the 634-meter-tall self-standing telecommunication tower with two observatories and commercial facilities, begins operating in spring of 2012.
