I promised some Tokyo Tower in my last post, and here it is!! 🙂
Just a month ago, it was warm enough where I could wear a sundress without a jacket, but today on the day after Thanksgiving, I’m all bundled up in a fuzzy blanket, and it’s still freezing. Brr!
But, oh yes.. Tokyo Tower!
We turned a corner, and there was Tokyo Tower! Just right there minding it’s own business, towering all over everything. It had just been hiding behind buildings just a fraction of it’s height!
How could we have missed it..? 😉
Tokyo Tower was there in all it’s glory….
And so was a building with walls made of grass, by the way! Talk about going green, lol! =(^-^)=
Tokyo Tower is at heart a signal tower, and as such, it towers over everything. To be expected, lol.
At least it’s very photogenic. *^-^*
Japan never misses an opportunity to turn something into a cute little character, with which to plaster all overall sorts of things that you can spend money on. 🙂
The fashionable pink guy in the sign is Noppon, the official mascot of Tokyo Tower..
Even funnier than the outside, though… was the gift shop inside!
As I said, here are mechanical pencils shaped like Noppon! Wouldn’t you like one of those in your hand? 😉
There are all kinds of things inside!
From gold-laminated plates..
To souvenier mugs of all shapes and sizes..
To vaguely adult goods! I mean.. stretch banana??!
I particularly loved this washcloth with a chibi Tokyo Tower on it!
If you’re feeling the heat, you can even dress like Granny! XD;;
And Tamara models my favorite toys– dinosaurs!!
At that point, Tamara and I left the Tower and headed off in search of something very special that was known to lurk nearby.. Godzilla! 😀 😀 😀
The post about our search for Godzilla is coming!
