Roppongi Hills Mori Tower is Tokyo's newest skyscraper which stands 238m tall and contains 54 floors. The complex opened April 25 and already has had over 10 million visitors as of June 20 according to its operator. And I was one of them. Regular admission to City View on the 52nd floor was Y1500. (I paid Y1200 because I signed up for a free discount card on the way in.)
This shot was taken near the base from underneath a sculpture that sort of looked like a big spider. See Ken's shot of this building as well.

Very nice! I like the perspective of looking up through the sculpture, makes for a nice twist. Seems like the sculpture is trying to walk over the building...one leg has almost made it to the other side. Well done!

I like this one as well. Weird, I have the same feeling as Fil.

Beautiful and intriguing perspective, nice combination of forms, shapes and colors. Quite abstract in some ways, very creative too.

A very clean picture of the tower. The spiders feet give it an absurd twist and rises the quality of the picture. Very well composed, and the choise of getting "inside" the spider was a good choise! For someone who has never seen the huge spider, the feet is just some abstract lines. And that is just as great, I guess. (Bow)
