Imre Sensei told me we should take pictures from this sign mirror as it starts to grow.

Its good news its construction but I still can't get over the idea that the location could be better. I mean in terms of the surroundings and how the tower will fit in; not as much. The surroundings are just apartment blocks and railway, and the grand luxurious tower in the middle don't appeal to me.

There aren't too many locations in Tokyo that are not next to apartment blocks and railroads like this.

The apartment blocks in the background is how a huge part of Tokyo looks like, the rest is lowrise residential areas. And of course it's next to a railroad, all the important places in Tokyo (well, maybe not the original Tokyo Tower) are close to railway or metro stations, that's just the way for the people to go to these places.

And the main centers with all the flashy buildings are already very busy areas, building this tower probably will too much for the areas and the transportation system. Now with this tower a new area will develop and that's very normal in this city of sub centers.

This sort of "surroundings" is basically 98% of Tokyo and this tower is not at all "luxurious" - the budget is less than the refurbishment of Tokyo Metropolitan Government building.

If not built, no more TV broadcast from 2011 and that's not an option.
