  1. I have seen this in person and it is impossible to describe. The keyhole-shaped cutout in the platform (top picture) is where you can stand and take it in at eye level. The scale and intricacy are humbling. I could have stood in there for an hour, but there was a line of people waiting with the attendant and, well, one tends to want to be polite in Japan, so I reluctantly gave up my perch. I will never forget it.

    If you are in Tokyo, you MUST visit the Mori Arts Center at Roppongi Hills to see this thing.
