Tokyo Skytree (Japanese: 東京スカイツリ Tōkyō Sukaitsurī) is located in Sumida Ward, Tokyo. It is the subject of a recurring joke, where members of the Karasuno team mistake a cell tower for the Skytree. The actual Skytree finally appears in chapter 230.
The Tokyo Skytree is first mentioned in the chapter Let's Go to Tokyo!! For Real!!, when Ryūnosuke Tanaka and Yū Nishinoya mistake a "regular cell phone tower" for the Skytree. In the chapter Omnivores, Shōyō Hinata asks Kenma Kozume about the Skytree, before mistaking a cell tower for the Tokyo Tower instead.
In real life
The Tokyo Skytree is a real broadcasting and observation tower located in Sumida Ward, Tokyo. It is the tallest free-standing tower in the world and the second tallest structure, after the Burj Khalifa. It was built to replace Tokyo Tower, as the switch from terrestrial to digital broadcasting meant a taller tower was needed.
