PL Tower

Posted by
Daryl Johnson (Worcester Park, United Kingdom) on 23 April 2007 in Cityscape & Urban.

If you ever head out to Tondabayashi in Osaka, you can't help but notice this... Headquarters of the Church of Perfect Liberty.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

It looks like a painting! I would have liked the tower a little on the right.

@Behrooz: Yeah, I hear you Behrooz. This was snapped out of the window of a car passing by so was my best opportunity... no time to frame etc. Took loads that were no good at all. I removed some digital camera noise which gives it that weird painting look.

@Inès: It's a pretty amazing building Ines! Looks to me like it's built of papier mache. Or built by giant ants. From space.

DTW from Orlando, United States

Wow, I missed that when I was there.

@DTW: It's not a part of Osaka that people usually travel to. The organization sponsor a massive fireworks display in the summer, biggest in the city I think. Ever heard of that DTW?

Looks like it could have been built by Fred Flintstone! It's so out of place. Only in Japan eh...

Mike Cash from Kiryu, Japan

Man, that's bizarre! Looks like The Flintstones meet The Jetsons or something.
