Square Peg through Square Hole - Arriving in Tokyo

The beauty of using a standard shipping container for a data center was illustrated again as we arrived on land for the Tokyo tour stop (Monday, November 12th to Wednesday, November 14th). This is truly the case of fitting a Square Peg of 4.0 meters through a square hole of 4.2 meters.

Here is a wider shot as the semi pulls off the ship:

Tokyo Tower can be seen in the background of this picture (its not far from the Tokyo Prince Hotel where we are positioned for tours).

Here are some interesting notes about Tokyo Tower. Since its opening in 1958, the Tokyo tower has been the world's tallest self-supporting steel tower, 8.6 meters taller than the Eiffel Tower (not including the TV antenna on the Tokyo Tower). While the tower is higher, it is also MUCH lighter than the Eiffel Tower weighing in at about 4,000 tons (as opposed to the Eiffel Tower's 7,300 tons).
