Don't you think the two towers look the same?


The two towers actually looks alike but actually these are two different towers. The first pic is Japan's Tokyo Tower wherelse the second pic is Eiffel Tower, France. Nicole and I went for sightseeing after we went to Harajuku for second trip.

Tokyo Tower's structure is actually inspired by Eiffel Tower and it is painted with white and international orange to comply with air safety regulations. Stands at 332.5 metres, Tokyo Tower is Japan's second tallest artificial structure after Tokyo Sea Tree with its full height of 634 metres which is currently under construction. By the way, Tokyo Tower is 13 metres taller than Eiffel Tower.

Miniature of Tokyo Tower at the lowest ground floor.


As Nicole and I did not had the intention to go all the way up to the top floor of the Tower, both of us went to the first floor to check it out any special place to visit. Without noticing, there is sourvenir shop. Spend few minutes to buy Japanese snack and local foods.
