Tokyo Tower - Japan
Some pics of Tokyo Tower in Japan.
At 332.9 metres (1,092 ft), it is the second-tallest structure in Japan. Built in 1958, Hisakichi Maeda, founder and president of Nippon Denpatō, the tower's
owner and operator, originally planned for the tower to be taller than
the Empire State Building, which at 381 meters was the highest structure in the world at the time.
Inspired by the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France, it is claimed the tower can withstand earthquakes with twice the intensity of the 1923 Great Kantō earthquake.
