In the photo below right, you can see Tokyo Dome in the lower left.

I doubt Tokyo Dome can be seen in this photo. All I see is a view over Sumida-ku with the shadow of the Skytree and, over the Sumida gawa, to the left a partial view of Taito-ku (Asakusa area). The Tokyo Dome is in Bunkyo-ku which is several kms away from any place shown in this photo.

Moderator: Tokyo Dome can be seen in the second photo.

Views from the Sky Tree is boring. All shaby small housings sprawling below. It was built at a place so called "shitamachi" working class people's areas of Tokyo while the old Tokyo Tower which stand amid the central part of Tokyo is great surrounded by high rise modern buildings with fine view of Tokyo Bay.

As always, I'm most struck by the abundant green space in Japanese cities.
