Tokyo Skytree (Tokyo Sukai Tsuri) and Asahi Flame Asakusa-Golden Turd (kin no unchi), few of the most recognizable landmarks in Tokyo. Tokyo Skytree is the world's talest tower at 634 m and the second highest structure after Burj Khalifa, Dubai. It is an observation and broadcast tower as well as a restaurant. It was publicly available for visit from May 2012. More info: http://www.tokyo-skytree.jp/english/
While the Golden Turd is the famous landmark a hall adjacent to the Azumabashi headquarters of Asahi Beer. The official name of the building is the 'Super Dry Hall'. Asahi HQ Building is located next to it. Both were designed by French designer Philippe Starck. It's actually a flame meant to represent the passionate heart of the Asahi Beer company. Well I'm not that into beer, but it's a unique landmark captured together with the Skytree from across Sumida river.
To get there: from anywhere of Asakusa, just go to Sumida River. You will see these two landmarks.
