Towers in Japan

There is one group of large steel structures that Japan loves more than giant robots:  towers. Most Japanese cities have at least one tower dotting their sky line. Towers are a symbol of pride for people. The most recent addition to the Tokyo skyline, Tokyo Sky Tree, broke the world record for tallest broadcasting tower in the world.
