I love Inokashira park! When I was there there, sakura was still everywhere and the park looked truly splendid. Kichijoji was nice too.

Awsome photo-thread Nihon.
I will make longer smarter comments later when I have more time
but for now how much was entrance to Mori Tower?

I know that sky tree(2011), the metropolitan building in Shinjuku and the (old) Tokyo tower is must-visit for viewing the cityscape but is Mori tower a 4th must-visit?

Tokyo has so much to see...I don't know if I have the authority what to say is a "must-visit" or not. There are many observatories in Tokyo with good views, another one I've been to is in Ikebukuro (link in my signature) which was equally as good, though the Roppongi Hills area is more impressive I guess (richer).

Mind blowing pictures of the most amazing city on the planet! WOW!

I spent a lot of time in this thread. I looked at each picture for little details. Tokyo is so dense yet so clean, it beggars belief.

Nikki, I want MOAR!

Great again keep on posting en notice there are a lot of viewers who dont post comments.
I saw that gigantic spiderlike thing halfway this page in Bilbao, Spain about two years ago.

But wait after some research I learned it is just one spider out of a series of metal spiders by Louise Bourgeois. And now I also remember the one in front of the Tate modern in London

Keep up the good work!
