Attractive angle to display the internal steel frame in elaborate geometrics of the Tokyo Tower and the night time gold lighting enhances the scene.
Is this the tower Godzilla destroyed in the movie?
Thanks for sharing,

A good POV, here we can follow here construction details, captured in an interesting light. This tower reminds me a lot of a similar one in Paris... Still, a very good picture.

Magnificent structure to visit and photograph, but standing underneath it made it look particularly diff & awesome with enormous impact and mass of detail you managed to register under low light condition, very tricky lighting to work with but the exposure control is spot on. The golden glow is just prominent enough to break up the dark night sky and helps to concentrate on the essential. It's beautiful and striking remarkably shot, Tfs

This tower looks like Eiffel tower ! The fact you've shot it by night adds nice nuances of golden tones.
