The Hotel Hightower
We're back in Japan today to look at Tokyo Disney Sea's magnificent Tower of Terror. Even though it has the same skeleton as California's (and France's--excluding the fact that the French Tower of Terror is structurally supported from concrete rather than steel), it looks drastically different on account of its Gothic Revival and Moorish Revival style. Even those weird cantilevers on the sides of the tower--which I always thought looked peculiar in the Art Deco iteration--seem more natural. It is a magnificent structure, and another amazing reminder of the detail that abounds at Tokyo Disney Sea!
