wicked pano. I can even see my hotel (Hotel Okura, in Ark Hills district [aka diplomatic quarter, Akasaka).

Ahh yes, the golden poop. Asahi: super dry poop.

only as high as the second observation deck i believe. weed is still illegal in japan .

on a more serious note, this tower is growing like a weed. i can't wait to see it finished and 'lit' up.

Glad to see that it's turning out so nicely. I lived there for two years ending in 2008, amazing to think how so much has happened in that time. Can't wait to go back and visit!

Aside from that, this is my new iPhone background!

How did you guys determine the roof height as 471 M? The correct figure should be 497 M.

Here is a video I took of it earlier this year

The tower has reached the roof which is 497M so it won't grow anymore (the tower itself), now they are making the 2nd pod and are constructing the spire inside. The spire will start going up in a month or so until it reaches the final height of 634 M

The office building will be 160 M (about 525 feet) and around 31 floors, it will be completed around december.
