At 634 metres, Tokyo Skytree is an absolute beast, but unlike the many mountains it shares the country with, it isn’t capable of affecting the weather. And yet that said, on this particular rainy season day, the transmission tower did seem to be doing a decent job of directing the clouds.
Super cool shot. I love the symmetry! 🙂
Thank you. Yeah, it’s a great spot, and the clouds made it even better.

Really good shot, I like how the crane next to it provides some sense of scale. Is the tower actually functional for broadcasting?
Thanks a lot, and yeah, I like the crane there. A nice dash of colour as well. Yes, it became necessary for a taller tower for digital transmissions, so Skytree was built to take over from Tokyo Tower.
Very atmospheric! 😮
Thanks, the one benefit of a lousy day!
Definitely not the usual shot of the Tokyo Skytree! And definitely more atmospheric than the usual ones!
Cheers, very good to hear. Not my usual kind of shot, but I like how it came out. It also has some old buildings in the frame, so that made me happy!
Really cool! I will send it to a friend who lives near the Skytree.
Cheers! Sure they’ll have seen a lot of similar scenes recently. Rainy season seems to be making up for lost time…
