La Tour Shiodome


When we moved to Tokyo I looked at an apartment in this building. It had fabulous views of Tokyo including Tokyo Bay. It was a great apartment and I should have wanted to live there. We had lived on the 27th floor in Singapore and I loved the view. However, Tokyo has something that we didn’t experience in Singapore…earthquakes. My thinking goes like this…even if we were still able to live in our 52th floor apartment after a big earthquake I know that we wouldn’t be able to use the elevator and there was no way I would want to climb up and down all those stairs. I still look at the high rises and long to live there and see all of Tokyo, but the stairs!! We live on the 3rd floor of a low rise and will be here until we leave Japan.
