PC #192: Tokyo, Japan

Another awesome view of the capital city of Japan– Tokyo. On the card you’ll see the soaring Tokyo Tower, a “communications and observation tower located in Shiba Park, Minato, Tokyo, Japan. At 332.5 meters (1,091 ft), it is the second tallest artificial structure in Japan. The structure is an Eiffel Tower-inspired lattice tower and is painted white and international orange to comply with air safety regulations.” (-Wikipedia)

This 53-year old tower (it was built in 1958) is a famous tourist destination; millions of people visit the tower ever since its opening. Thanks to my postcard friend Momoko for sharing this card with me.  Have a fine spring time!
