The Tokyo Tower is 333 meters high. Since 1958 is has been the world's tallest self-supporting iron tower. The Eiffel tower is only 320 meters tall. The Tokyo tower weighs 4000 tons which is much lighter than the Eiffel tower which weighs 7000 tons. The tower is painted in white and orange to meet aviation safety regulations. The Tokyo tower broadcasts 14 signals for radio and television. The Tower has a lightning rod on the top. Visitors can take an elevator to an observatory level which provides excellent views of the city.
I tried many shots of the tower but at that time I didn't have my wide angle lens yet. In the end, this is how I think the Japan Tokyo Tower should be taken, from the bottom up. :P
I like this picture and I hope you like it too.

A great industrial shot, YahWen. THe angle is excellent and the jungle of steel bars is very interesting. I like the colors and the framing, too. Very well done.
