Well, it's actually not my photo. My dad works in Kobe, today (yesterday local time) he was in Tokyo for business, and I asked him to take a shot of the Sky Tree for me. I'll be spending June in Japan with a proper camera. I've already chosen a 75-300 zoom lens just because of this building.

Some could argue New York for area (sq km) or Bangladesh for density are 'larger', but that's off topic.

They don't have a Sky Tree, so Tokyo wins!

Why do you quote all the pictures from that post? Can you please answer that? It's on the same page so I don't really get it.

01/30 blog update #1





they didn't install antenna's on the last segment



East Tower


http://tokyo-sky-tree.seesaa.net/


If you looked good at the top of the spire you would have noticed something standing on top of it. They have put up a wind speed meter on the very top.

Why wouldn't they have installed antennas on the current section?
