I never thought I'd see the comment "what a foreground" on a Skyscraper/Urban forum, when the background shows the main skyline and the foreground shows a golf course

But you're right - good picture too.

I like the endless skyscraper effect in Nagoya pic.

The Westin and Guangzhou tower look cooool:

Makati like KL still has plenty of land for tall buildings

I object.

It doesn't look AS GOOD as you seem to claim it to be.

To me it looks like a bayfront with a few nice skyscrapers and a ferris wheel.

I agree, Yokohama does look very good but they should removed the ferris wheel since its becoming eye-sore as many cities around the world are placing a ferris wheel on their waterfront.

emm.....yokohama has that ferris wheel way before London, Singapore and other cities who r fighting to have 'who has the highest ferris wheel in the world' has it....to be exact it was there since 1989!

i think japanese r the one who make that thing popular....i mean for city's attraction. while others r copying....

i believe Fung shui plays a big part in determining how great the city looks...

having mountain backdrop like yokohama and honghong...

facing the sea and river confluence like singapore and sydney....

i don't know much about the fung shui, but i strongly believe of some of its ideas....

Makati, Jakarta, KL, doesn't look BOLD because it stands in a place where no any 'powerful' elements are....the 'qi'.

That's what i appreciate about Yokohama, and that's why its one of my favorite skylines in Asia, because it doesn't look like a chaotic mess in the least, which many cities seem to struggle with. It looks like it was planned very well. I really like it. Plus i love its signature tower
