Lightning looks great already, and they still have not turned on all the lights on the two pods

Wouldn't those icicles cause serious injury if struck someone?

Hanging round the tower during winter looks very dangerous to me now.

You mean in the very rare occasions there are snowfalls in Tokyo (like once or twice a year, if any) And I guess the "problem" is the same in any tower/scrapper around the world.

Anyway, the video shows very light pieces of snow or ice, they are being windblown. If they were heavier, they would fall straight down, and the base of the tower is a covered facility.

MASSIVE. I can imagine living in Tokyo as living in a world of its own. So many things to do and places to visit.

WOW @ that aerial shot. Tower looks great and neat to see that they've incorporated some retail into the base as well.
