Anyway, I'm going to give this one to NYC with HK as second. Why? It has an extensive collection of skyscrapers from the 1900s to contemporary ones.

The Empire State Building is considered the greatest skyscraper ever built and it is in NY!

Tokyo indeed has high density and on par with sao paulo but with better height and cbd look.

From the pic of tokyo, i think most of the roads there are narrow. No wonder they have to build expressways on top of normal roads, at some points its 3 layer of road

Likely because the trees have green foliage and Mount Fuji does not have snow on its summit.
