Tokyo Tower is modeled after the Eiffel Tower, its design is based on that of Eiffel Tower's, so there is no comparison could be made really.

True. Yes the Eiffel is original and innovative but we all have our own preference! And I prefer The Tokyo Tower!

One thing, both towers fit the city pretty well! The Eiffel Tower has that classical feel especially when most of Paris' buildings have that classic architecture. The Tokyo Tower on the other hand may not look as classical as The Eiffel but it fits the futuristic and urban look of Tokyo's skyline.

I love both but I prefer the original because it's original and because it has better proportions.

The Tokyo Tower sure is one nice structure, but my vote still goes to the Eiffelt Tower. It is too iconic and simply massive. Considering it's been built in the 1880s, it is a stunning technological marvel; something that will always attract people from around the world.

I think Eiffel Tower is nicer.

And this is the tallest lattice tower in the world (height: 385 metres)

Its so disappointing to see Japan with such a outdated lame tower that is out engineered by something built decades ago.

Eiffel no competition, I will be satisfied with Tokyo when they build something like X Seed 4000
