This thing is TALLER and takes up a WAYYYY smaller footprint than the Eiffel Tower. Primarily it's from the use of steel over iron that offers it those benefits. Anyways, I forgot the obligatory shot of the whole tower, so here's one from google, just to get an idea:
What you see below is a 145meter downwards view to the ground. Throughout the observation deck are these nausea-inducing floor-mounted windows.
Views from around the Tokyo Tower. There are actually a lot of cemeteries surrounding it =x Mount Fuji is visible on clear days, but a clear day it was not.
Obligatory shot. I couldn't fit inside the damn thing. It actually had a joystick and pedals inside the cockpit.
My tour buddy, who happened to be one of the patients I was called in to examine. She said she didn't want to look stupid posing like a robot, hah =p
At lunch I was amazed at the size of the creamers. They're thimble-sized!
I could not resist the waffles. I ordered myself a almond and caramel waffle. Damned good.
