-It seems that you don't understand the difference between "tall" and "big".
-I don't see any evidence to prove that Toyko tower is bigger.

Japan can do better and deserves better than this. This tower isn't all that special. But then again, most "towers" or "structures" are not as attractive as buildings.

An iconic tower that visually represents and reinforces the fact that Tokyo is one of the four most important cities in the world, it is not. But good height, which the tower has, makes up for the design a little. Overall, this will be a good thing for Tokyo.

Nice graceful tower, very modern and I like the renders but why does Tokyo need to Eiffel Towers??? lol. Hopefully it's as shiny and silver as the renders although I doubt it will be as it's a render.

Besides, from my point of view, the Guangzhou TV tower is better than the Tokyo if the rendering in this post is the final design.
Guangzhou TV tower, all constructed with steel


Maybe for Guangzhou, but sumidatower suits Tokyo better with its modern bluish look.

not a big fan of the design - too much of an 'eiffel tower' in there.... anyhow, see what the finish product looks like.

all i can say is that this tower really disappointed me from japan,
this towers... for me is ugly, my reasons:
1.there are already many towers of this kind of design so its getting kind of boring
2. too slim
3. I dont see anything "modern" and "futuristic" on this design to be honest
4. Not very innovative for me
And if this is getting constructed with this design, well, this will give me 1 reason to say that japan is not very innovative, also i too think that japan deserve much more, like a 1k tower height and a innovative desing
