dc.description.abstractBroadcast Transcript: Scanning the skyline of the Japanese capital today, it's hard to catch sight of Tokyo Tower. Modeled on the Eiffel Tower and 333 meters in height, the orange-and-white landmark is the world's tallest self-supporting steel structure, but it's now obscured by skyscrapers. Back in 1958, however, Tokyo Tower loomed over the city, a monument to Japan's postwar revitalization. Originally intended to relay TV signals, Tokyo Tower is now obsolete, but remains a tourist attraction with a certain pop celebrity cach�: Godzilla destroyed it in one film, Mothra used it as a nest in another, and the psychic Uri Geller once bounced telekinetic rays off it to bend spoons and fix broken clocks all over Tokyo. Who knows what else the Tower might be good for? #ceas #japan #tsutsui #ashworth
