I noticed on a blog calender that the Tokyo Tower was completed Dec 23,1958. 52 years old this day.

Wow! It is looking really good! As I said before I didn't like the cladding but it is growing on me lately. I like how it turning out now. Tokyo should add some taller skyscrapers to help balance Tokyo skyline because Tokyo Sky Tree looks like a lone tower and need some "friends".

Great to see TST interacting with Tokyo's skyline, evethough most of these are because of the forced perspective.

Magnificent anyway.

Spectacular, thanks as always.
I bet people will be trying for years to get the perfect Sky Tree/Mt Fuji shot, and it'll be on every second postcard of Tokyo. Looking forward to it!


Just for reference, here's one of the shots I took in January, so you can see how far it's come in one year:

Yes, the Eiffel Tower is nicer, but I think it is nicer in the same way that an old european cathedral is nicer than a modern building, which is that are different styles.

Anyway, Tokyo already has an "Eiffel Tower", just a little bit more coloful, The Tokyo Tower
