Tokyo Tower

The Tokyo Tower was built in the likeness of the Eiffel tower, but is probably uglier because it is painted orange and white (due to "rules"). It is 333 meters tall, which is apparently taller than the Eiffel Tower.

This is a really big and lovely park. We saw some incredible jugglers there- they balanced and spun bowls of water on sticks perched on a reed in their mouth (as you can see in the picture).
