Whatever the attractive point of a sky tree may be called, it is the beautiful lighting. Lighting of the Skytree changes a color every day. There are two of basic colors and the light blue is “Iki (Stylish)” and the purple is “Miyabi (Elegant)” settled down. It is said that this design that changes to day by day is expressing the future which continues previously.
