Do you know the tallest towers and buildings in Japan? In this article we will see the tallest skyscrapers in Tokyo and a complete list of the largest buildings in all of Japan.
Most of these skyscrapers are designed for offices and commercial use, but some have their space open to tourism, allowing you to dazzle the view of the city. We will mainly see the ones in Tokyo, but we can mention others.
