Tokyo Tower

Tokyo Tower
This tower, Tokyo Tower, was constructed about 50 years ago to supply electric waves to watch TV and to listen to the radio. In the middle of the tower is a place for enjoying the vista of Tokyo.

The tower is one of the popular and typical spots for travelers but people living in Tokyo seldom visit there. Because it is a sightseeing spot. In general, sightseeing spots seem to be unpopular with people living there... How about your city??

Well, it looks a little bit Frenchy ! I did not you had such a monument in Tokyo.
To answer your question, I would say that to many people do not know the history of the place where they live. That is why I like sightseeing spots !

Same here in Paris.

Parisians rarely go up the Eiffel Tower unless they have relatives or friends from out of town visiting.

I went up maybe twice or 3 times in 47 years!

It is a nice tower. It wasn't there in 1953 when I was in Tokyo. Times change. I guess that is progress. I would love to see the view from the vista location on the tower.

Many people now are afraid of communications transmission towers and antannaes...fearful that the the signal waves may cause cancer. People tend to stay away from them in my town.

Same here! Most New Yorkers don't like going to Time Square.

Macky, as a kid, I watched a lot of gozilla and ultraman movies/TV shows and this tower was always prominently displayed. But now, I rarely see this tower in pictures of Tokyo.

Thank you for the comments:-))

People living there don't appear to go to sightseeing spots.

ming,
Gozilla and ultraman destory this tower over and over again!

walter,
I did not know that the signal waves may cause cancer. Now many kinds of waves surround us and I cannot keep away from them...
