Tokyo Tower (東京タワー) Mori Tower (六本木ヒルズ森タワー)

When the Tokyo Tower was built in 1958 I bet it dwarfed everything else in Tokyo. There probably weren’t many buildings at the time that were more than a few stories. All that has changed of course. Although it is still technically taller than the Mori Tower, the location of the Mori Tower is higher so from this angle the Tokyo Tower looks far shorter. Here’s a photo of the Tokyo Tower from Mori Tower.

When we wanted to give a gift “from Oregon” when we were in Japan we would head over to the International Supermarket in Azabu known as Nissin World Delicatessen (address: 東京都港区東麻布2丁目34−2). The selection was good, but the prices were crazy. If I remember correctly, a bottle of Rogue beer that could be purchased at my local supermarket in Ashland for well under $2 would cost four or five times as much in Tokyo. But the very fact that something from Rogue Ales could be purchased in Tokyo was pretty cool.

From the third floor in Nissin World Delicatessen (日進ワールドデリカテッセン) you can see Tokyo Tower out the window.
