||"Tokyo Tower". A night scene with the illuminated Tokyo Tower. |
The Tokyo tower was opened in 1958. It was a symbol of Japan's economic resurgence after world II. The steel tower was made after the design of the Eiffel Tower. Although the Tokyo tower is taller than the Eiffel Tower, it weighs less. The tower was designed to withstand a major earthquake of double the intensity of the great Kanto earthquake of 1923.
At the time when Shiro Kasamatsu created this design he was no longer working for the publisher Watanabe but for Unsodo in Kyoto.
