They could have saved a lot of money if they built the last eight metres first

Tokyo Tower is 8.6 metres higher than the Eiffel Tower. And don’t you forget it. This will normally be the first thing you hear after “This is Tokyo Tower”.

It’s one of the most famous landmarks in Tokyo, and gives some great views of the city. Well worth a trip, though it’s a little pricey as such things normally are ($10 AUD to the centre platform, $20 to the top).

Please enjoy these pictures I took of and from it.

  1. So is it lighter than the air contained in an imaginary enclosing cylinder like the Eiffel Tower?

    That’s usually the first thing you hear after ‘And this is the Eiffel Tower’.

  2. And how about some higher res pictures? We’ve just upgraded to 22″ widescreen monitors in the office here – even the cat has one – and the minimum standard for jpeg is 1680×1050, now. 900×500 just doesn’t cut it, I’m sorry.

  3. Could I address your stream of complaints in sequence?

    1. I’m guessing so, it’s lighter and higher than the Eiffel Tower.
    2. But wot if I got a passport and everythink?
    3. Haven’t you got 3D screens yet? They’re all the rage here.
    4. I call spelling nazi.
    5. Actually, you’re right, it was self-evident. I demote you to spelling nazi-sympathisers.

  4. The photos are really awesome – like stills from one of those ‘invasion of the Earth by robotic aliens’ type movies. Well done!

    Is there a picture gallery, or is that all we get for our ( sorry, your) $20.

    And was there the usual gift shop, complete with Snow Domes? Important information to plan our trip
