Tallest structures in Japan
Can someone find out more about the tallest structures of Japan?
These are/were:
* Iwo Jima LORAN-C transmitter ( ), whose 411.5 metre mast collapsed in 1965 and destroyed thereby also the transmitter building. Was it rebuilt?
* Former OMEGA Transmitter Shushi-Wan ( ), 389 metres
* Marcus Island LORAN-C transmitter ( )

Please update the articles over these structures in Wikipedia.

Highly unlikely considering LORAN is an obsolete navigational aid system that hasnt been used in widespread fashion for decades.

And the Tokyo Tower??

Tokyo Tower would be second right now currently standing at just above 1090 ft. It was originally built for radio trans now think there is like 5 tv stations that use it I know NHK does and obviously a tourist trap with the aquarium etc in it now...

Thread Resurrection!
Tokyo Sky Tree will be 634m and will more or less replace Tokyo Tower.

Osaka's Abeno Harukas multi-use building will be the tallest building in Japan, at 300m (taller than the Landmark Tower in Yokohama).
