I think the preference to west comes from the idea of living freely and serenely in a democracy.

Yeah, a very nice TV tower to be the world's tallest, very original and elegant. Even if it wasn't the world's tallest tv tower, its still extravegant. But there is nothing stopping the Tokyo TV Tower from being the tallest as well, it can easily extend its spire a few more meters.

Wasn't the official height 610 meters? Or was it actually 618m and were we deceived? It seems Culwulla revealed the truth.

It doesn't look dirty, it looks like its made out of concrete. Hope it will get a more polished and reflecting finishing.

IDK if it is T/O still. Till they confirm or till the green scaffolding comes off I wont be sure. They'll make it shiny. Dont worry. It'll be white in no time.
