Kyoto Tower

Kyoto, Japan

"Each major metropolitan city in Japan has a tower. Residents take pride in the height of
their tower. But Kyoto's tower, built in 1964 in the motif of a candlestick for Buddhism
or a lighthouse (for a city which is not near the sea), stands atop a build, so it looks
like cheating. Not all Kyoto residents are proud of it..." --SG

Thanks to Sachie for phooning (and for the photo idea).
