Tokyo TV Tower – the pride of the Japanese people
When you go to Tokyo and look around, you will definitely see a very tall tower somewhere. This is the Tokyo TV tower and is the pride of the Japanese people. If it were just a tall tower, it would not mean so much, but the Tokyo TV tower was different, this tower was built after World War II. The tower’s materials were made of steel and were disassembled pieces of tanks during the war. Rising up amid the wreckage of war, Tokyo TV Tower has become the pride of the whole of Japan, marking the country moving into a new era of development.
The structure of the tower is made of steel and is recorded in the Guinness record as the tallest steel tower in the world. The tower is built in a self-supporting steel structure similar to the Eiffel Tower but 8.6 meters taller than the Eiffel Tower and half as light as the Eiffel Tower. The body of the tower has 176 lights and the color of lights changes with the seasons. In the winter, the tower will be bright yellow to create a warm feeling and summer is white like ice sheets to make people feel hot.
Tokyo TV Tower is not only a television tower but also a famous tourist attraction. The tower is divided into 4 main floors:
The first floor is an aquarium with more than 50,000 species of fish, souvenir shops and a large restaurant that can accommodate up to 400 diners.
The second floor is the restaurant and clothing store.
The third floor displays Guinness world records and music museums since 1970.
The fourth floor is home to artworks, but other than that, besides seeing abstract paintings, it also comes to see the whole city from the top of the tower.
From the above points, we can see that this is a symbol of Japan after the war, but later there were many towers or skyscrapers rising up but undeniable the value of this tower.
