Nagoya TV Tower,Nagoya City Central Japan

Monday 6 February 2006
Nagoya's TV Tower built in 1954 was the first of its kind built in Japan.Obvivously modelled after the Eiffel Tower in Paris it squats in the centre of Hisaya Odori Park in Sakae Nagoya.The tower stands some 180 metres with an observation balcony 100 metres above the busy shoppers.Having recently celebrated its 50th birthday the tower now wears a new silver gleaming coat of paint which makes it all the more resemble a giant meccano set.
