    Tokyo Tower.
    Built in 1958 as a transmission tower, at 333 metres it was 13 metres taller than the Eiffel Tower. Since then, though, a succession of skyscrapers & other towers have made its uniqueness fade.
    It contains several sites, more aimed at the child than the adult, and admission seemed a little steep to me, but thousands flock there every day.

    Tokyo Tower is actually taller than the Eiffel Tower, although it seems much less substantial. More modern construction techniques meant that it is only a quarter of the weight of its more famous sister in Paris. Ride to the top on a fine spring day and watch the aircraft coming and going at Tokyo's domestic airport, Haneda. If the air is exceptionally clear, you'll be able to see the majestic outline of Fuji in the distance.

    Another view from Tokyo Tower

    Yet another view from the Tokyo tower. The views are great here but it's kind of expensive. For equally good views for free, go to the Metropolitan Government building in Shinjuku.

    Our hotel was in walking distance of the Tokyo tower and so it made a handy landmark for those of us who got lost. Never actually made it to the top. Something to do maybe next time I visit.

    Tokyo Tower charges quite a lot for admission, so we chose to admire it from a distance instead. We could see the Tower from Roppongi Hills.

    This tower was built in 1958 and is higher than Eiffel Tower. It was two city views. I didn't visit it... what a shame....

    Tokyo Tower, pictured in so many Japanese dramas. The view from top of the tower is fabulous, particularly on a clear day.

    Ok, it's a bit of a tourist trap and is expensive. Maybe it is in the wrong section. However, it' s better looking at night when it's lit up.
