Sumida Tower

Pictured is the New Tokyo Tower which will be constructed by 2011 next to Oshiage station in Sumida-ku.
It will be the tallest free-standing tower in the world and the tallest man-made structure in Japan: at 2001 feet, nearly twice the height of the existing Tokyo Tower. However I haven’t heard many opinions on it yet.
Inspirational, waste of money, needless Godzilla provocation? What do you think?

    I am all for it. The video is hilarious. “A kind future begins here…”

    Just for the curious: Tokyo Tower stands 333 meters. The new tower is planned to stand 610 meters.
