The top looks like a good place for a swimming pool, or ice skating rink in the winter!

The only problem is that you have to walk the stairs all the way from the second pod.

02/16 and a bit of 02/15 & 02/14 blog round-up:

New kind of antennas.






http://tokyo2ndtower.cocolog-nifty.com/blog/




http://512colors.blog120.fc2.com/

New 3 months schedule up to April.

And in April they will start dismantling the tower cranes.

I think base jumpers from around the world will try to get to the top. Too bad there is almost no place to land in Tokyo!

Huge! Nice to see the progress every day. I regret that it is almost finished.. It was nice to observe this project and take a look from time to time.

They will get their guts fried if they will try to climb the active antenna.
