Tokyo, Japan
October 26, 2017

Located in Shiba-koen District of Minato, the Tokyo Tower has become a popular landmark of Japan that could easily be spotted in various forms of media production, including the popular Japanese animation.

Built in 1958, the Tokyo Tower is an Eiffel Tower-inspired lattice tower, a freestanding framework tower that serves Japan not only for aesthetic purposes but also acts as support for broadcast antennas at 332.9 meters (1,092 feet) of Japanese media outlets such as NHK, TBS, and Fuji TV.

Every five years, the tower is repainted white and international orange to comply with air safety regulations. It takes one year to repaint the entire structure.
