The skyscrapers from Shiodome are not spectacularly tall, actually none of them are in the top 10 tallest skyscrapers in Tokyo. The building from the right side of the photo, Nippon Television Tower (Nittele Tower) is 193 meters tall and is the 32nd on the list of the tallest skyscrapers in Tokyo, while the one from left, Royal Park Shiodome Tower, is a little smaller, only 172 meters…
But few places in the world can give you such an overwhelming feeling like Shiodome. There are several areas, like the one from this picture, where you can actually get dizzy by looking up… The reason is probably the relatively narrow space, combined with the glass paneled walkway crossing between the two towers.
Anyway, it’s a nice place to visit, and if you’re here don’t forget to go to the NI-TELE Really BIG Clock, the Steampunk masterpiece made by Hayao Miyazaki, located exactly at the end of this walkway…
