I don't know what's more epic... This tower, or Momo's consistent updates.

Tokyo Sky Tree suffered no structural damage from the quake.

In Tokyo, the quake measured on local seismometers as a magnitude 5.

Wow I didn't know the bottom was so "leg-like" and triangular, I thought it was all circular.

Didn't really like the look of this tower when I first saw it. But the more and more pictures I see of it the more it grows on me.

Was hoping my first post would be a bit more useful, but whatever :P
