The colour is a great advantage at night. I love the night pictures.

FOCUS: Tokyo Tower exploring synergic effect with Sky Tree
1 March 2010
Kyodo News

TOKYO, March 1 -- The 333-meter-tall Tokyo Tower in Minato Ward, which has long established itself as a landmark of the metropolis, is going to have a strong rival about 8 kilometers northeast away.

The 634-meter-tall Sky Tree is being built in Sumida Ward for opening in spring 2012, and Tokyo Tower is making strenuous efforts to survive as a major tourist spot.

According to Tokyo Tower, a total of 160.95 million people have climbed up to its observation deck since its opening in 1958 to the end of January. It underwent renovation in 2002, and visitors, especially couples in their 20s and 30s and families, have been on the rise in the last several years.

Since 2003, large complexes, like those in the nearby Roppongi Hills, have made their debut, heightening a sense of crisis among Tokyo Tower officials. But a Tokyo Tower spokesman said, ''A new migratory flow of people has been created, resulting in a synergic effect.''

He pinned his hope on an increase in people touring uptown and downtown by enjoying their differences even after the opening of Sky Tree.

But Tokyo Tower is making steady efforts to attract visitors. The large observation deck 150 meters high is a good spot to observe Sky Tree growing day by day. One year ago, fixed telescopes were removed from the deck, and visitors can rent binoculars for 500 yen.

With binoculars, visitors can watch cranes hoisting iron frames at Sky Tree and other work. They can also see a 360-degree view of the metropolis.

At the same time, Tokyo Tower is organizing various tourism promotion events in tie-ups with the Hamamatsucho area in the neighborhood and various other regions in the country. Recently, a food fair was held at the foot of the tower in a tie-up with 16 local governments across the country.

The Japanese have no shame. Ripping off the French. I guess this is part of the culture- to import outside ideas and designs.
