This is the Tokyo Tower in Japan, which is the world’s tallest self supporting steel structure. Although it seems like everything can be classified as the world’s tallest something… ( I hearby declare myself the world’s third tallest Google Sightseeing Administrator).
The Tokyo Tower is (obviously) based on the Eiffel Tower, but at 333 metres, is 9 metres taller. There’s lots of good info about the tower over at Wikipedia, so we’ll just mention that the first floor houses an aquarium, home to 50,000 fish, and that this was the landmark which was destroyed again and again by Godzilla, Rodan, Mothra, Guiron, Gamera, and scores of other rubber-monsters.
