Explanation

To differentiate buildings and other structures that are not intended for continuous human occupancy, the latter are called non-building structures. Structural height in technical usage is the height to the highest architectural detail on building from street-level. Depending on how they are classified, spires and masts may or may not be included in this height.
Spires and masts used as antennas are not generally included.

Eiffel Tower Pictures


direct paraverse by Gabi

"the Eiffel tower, which looks like an ayatori pattern, also begins the winter season"

There are many patterns for the ayatori game in Japan, but "Eiffel Tower" is a new image used by Arima sensei. Maybe he is in Paris on a dreary day in early winter and remembers the games of his childhood. ayatori is a game played inside during the long winter months. The skilfull use of the kigo brings this atmosphere of expectation of long dark months ahead.
