Been to both.

I like the Eifel Tower much more. For me is this the greatest structure in the world.

But the view from the Tokyo Tower is much better. An endless sea of buildings with thousands of skyscrapers and in the distance you can see the most beautiful vulcano in the world.
Paris is very flat from the Eiffel Tower.

Well, of course it can't be compared with Tokyo but the view from the Eiffel Tower on La Défense is still very beautiful, but it's true it's better from the 1st or 2nd deck than the third one. The thing is that the top of the Eiffel tower is very high.

Most people consider the best view on Paris is actually the one from the top of Montparnasse tower.

I chose the Tokyo tower. I love the red and white striping. It makes it look functional.

Both are great towers, but I like the Tokyo Tower just a little bit more. Has anyone got a photo of it under construction?

I choose Eiffel as it has more grace in it. I do however, give points for TT for having the red&white coloring. They remind me of my former home town to whicth I so long for to return.







Home is there where the towers are.

Well personnally, my main problem about the Tokyo tower is about its concrete core. I find the 4 wide open arches between Eiffel's 4 feet more elegant.

Anyway, here are some pictures of the Eiffel Tower :

I like TT, cuz it's quite modern and high
ET is already very obsolete, and for me it's just a heap of metal stuff

Don't over-estimate Tokyo tower's height. Actually, both towers are relatively of the same height, however Eiffel tower is wider and its observation deck is higher than in the case of TT.

I think the diagram of Tokyo Tower there needs to be redone, there seem to be problems with the lower part of the tower. For instance there isn't such a big gap between the top of the arches and the podium.
