some people pick up this pic as nice ones,, but I doubt that the over-done HDR pics ever represent the city's beauty.. By any chance, someone get any FUTURISTIC impression from those pics? No way, for me, it reminds me of just a ruined city after WWIII-like disaster, likely seen from some anime. yeh, just my feeling.

If I could (a) afford it and (b) the japanese would have me, I would love to live there.

Are you saying that the Camera and editing made the city look like a ruined city after WWII or that is how you think of Tokyo in general?

I dont particularly like HDR photos either. Some Hong Kong HDR photos are pretty bad as well.

It just looks fake to me, not bad. But I could not find other pictures that show that view.

Tokyo has many skyscrapers but they are all seperated. Here is an example of Tokyo's skyscrapers that are clustered in different areas. All of the following pictures are Tokyo.

Tokyo Sky Tree which will be the 2nd tallest building in the world after Burj Dubai
Scroll






Shinjuku


Ikebukuro


Tokyo Tower area


Imperial Palace


Shibuya




Shinonome


Ueno




Akihabara





Tokyo Station Area


River City


Tokyo Midtown


Roppongi


Osaki


Kasumigaseki


Tōkyō Dome Area




Et Cetera. If all of the clusters were concentrated Tokyo could have a really good skyline..but they're not. There's still many more I didn't show.

That's right. We take the representative Character from kyoto 京都, Osaka 大阪 and Kobe 神戸. We get 京阪神 which is "keihanshin" which is "greater Osaka" or "Osaka metropolitan area" actually that pronounciation is chinese (on-yomi) and not japanese pronounciation (kun-yomi).

How do you pronounce 京阪神 in chinese?

Seoul looks more similar with Osaka (more hilly/mountainous) than Tokyo.

BTW since Tokyo's skyline is so spread amount with many "mini" skylines it is best to see it at a distance. This video is very good to see Tokyo Skyline

oh, kitty, don't overstate,, I just reviewed my view of THE pic itself..
yeah, HDR pics are affordable for me generally, but the both over-done HDR pics make the view looks blurred, grim, dim and ruined. It's far from any FUTURISTIC to me.

(and I said not WWII but WW3, likely SF imagination shown in classical anime.)
