You stated "a skyline needs medium height that is something Tokyo simply does not have" and then you referenced So Paulo, ignoring the reference (Asia in general is filled with "seas of built up" areas see Seoul, Chinese cities any number of SE Asian cities, Indian cities etc) can you explain what you mean by moderate height? If tokyo does not qualify as at least medium height then you are basically disqualifying most Asian cities from Singapore to Bangkok, actually most cities in the world. If your point is simply each skyline cluster of Tokyo is filled in with low rises and houses so there is no unifying skyline of "Tokyo" that's basically what we've been saying this entire time but your point seems to be entirely different.

You are making my point for me. Singapore has no supertalls at all, Tokyo has the tallest tower in the world and a 333m one as well, Bangkok has two super talls both shorter than Tokyo tower (333m). All three cities have 200m+ buildings. If none of those are "medium height", that means only Hong Kong, Shanghai and maybe one or two other Chinese cities have skylines.

i think 200+ meters and a 300m building doesnt makes really much difference

both looks tall if surrounded by highrises.


most importantly a skyline other than having tall buildings also need to have a good setting inside the skyline like mountain, waterfront, river, etc to combine skyline with nature. that will be beautiful to see.

You are talking about something else again lol. But yes I agree 200m+ is generally tall which is why I don't understand what his definition of medium height is, we just need to wait for his response

tokyo has iconic mt fuji
hk has many hills and sea separating 2 skyline
shanghai has wide pearl river
singapore has marina bay


these nature are beautiful as well.

This is specifically Songdo, which is U/C and a bit off from the traditional Incheon city centre.

Seems it is framing itself as a new "smart" city and not so much the port that Incheon is better known for.
