Tokyo Tower taken with my Sony Ericsson W960i

Tokyo Tower is just behind Prince Park Hotel in Minato-ku.

"The 332.6-meter-tall (1,091 ft) orange and white lattice communications tower is the tallest self-supporting steel structure in the world, the tallest artificial structure in Japan, and was the 11th tallest tower in the world.[3] Built in 1958, this Eiffel Tower-like structure supports an antenna that broadcasts television and radio signals for important Japanese media outlets. In recent years, the tower has also been instrumental in Japan's push to switch from an analog signal to digital signal."
