I'm sorry but I cant find Tokyo Tower in anyway better that Eiffel Tower. The view must be awesome but its the tower not the view we are comparing.
To me, Its like comparing the Beatles with the Backstreet Boys.

Add some white stars over a blue background and you will adore it

Love both but the ugly concrete core and the tacky antennas on the TT make me prefer the classic Eiffel tower.

I cant vote for neither one, they are so similiar but yet so different. Eiffel tower is really european and iconic to Paris, while Tokyo tower on the other hand lits up well in Tokyo and serves as an antenna.

I dont think anyone should be angry that tokyo "copied" the eiffel tower, rather they should be happy that they found the eiffel towers design so interesting it influenced them to build a similiar one.

For me Tokyo Tower is not really a copy but it is inspirated.

I voted for the Tokyo Tower because i've been to the Eiffel Tower and it's surrounded by beggers and tramps.
