After all, it's the biggest metropolitan area in the world. They need an icon of size.

Fantastic updates guys! Love this shot! This gives us a real sense from street level of just how big this tower is - and will be once completed!
Agreed, and it has that tower flair already that buildings don't have. Reminds me of standing at the foot of the CN Tower.

Absolutely! You now, the more of the white steel structure we see exposed the more beautiful and meaningful the tower really becomes. Considering how far it still has to climb, it's already looking so elegant in the Tokyo skyline and every little bit like the truly iconic structure it will undoubtedly become after completion. Couldn't agree more also, for a metropolitan area the mass of Tokyo such a tower/icon is much needed. Long overdue actually IMO.

I just can't wait for the tower to reach the first observation point!

I've seen it on the first two weeks of October and I can really see the progress which has been doing so far. I just have some doubts about the location, Asakusa's not the best hotspot for tourism in town, but rather a nice and calm neighbourhood, a place I really enjoyed to live in. But it'll provide a real nice view on all the different parts of the town, congrats.

It was high time I paid a visit to the tower Pics taken today 10/30 at noon.

What can I say? It's HUGE even though it's just beginning to scrap Tokyo's sky.
