Just saw it in the distance from the Tokyo Tower. It is not lit up like I have seen in the photos. Perhaps tomorrow I will head over to see it up close and personal

I might be biased but I think the tower itself is not that attractive and very "industrial-looking" However, it fits Tokyo's skyline well

Is there a tower that isn't industrial looking?

Overall very beautiful. Originality has been tought to come by for such exhibition towers, but this has a unique character. I'm not enamored with the cap of the antennae portion, and wish the tower did recede into a sharper point. Also wish the two occupied blocks could be placed even further up, but these are minor personal wishes.

Congratulations, Tokyo!

As you can see the nets are back around the antenna tower, we will see work on the antenna equipment in the last 2 months of construction.

Schedule for next week, only 1 day off for the workers on the tower on new years day. A sign that there's still enough work that has to be done, otherwise the workers would have gotten some extra days off from work, just like the workers on the complex.

And in about 2,5 hour, (21:00 local time) the illumination will be on for the very last time before the official opening in May.

The tower looks shocked, probably because of the surrounding buildings is relatively low. And I think the shape of the tower is not as beautiful as guangzhou tower . How do you like it ?
