Why don't they build skyscrapers, that are taller, i know there are earth quake problems but i think they have technology that can combat the harm done by earth quakes. I also heard somehwere that they don't build skyscrapers so that they don't disrupt the temples that are nearby, but i'm not sure.

Can anybody clarify?

You're right man, when I see this pic, I gotta tell me Tokyo is nothing compared to the paradise you showed us!

Thanks for making me laugh like this, but you need to know that even a "third class" (no negative meaning) city in Japan may be richer than your beloved Istanbul, so think about Tokyo...

The problems are several. First, in Minato area and the bay area there is an high limit due to the Haneda airport. Haneda airport is located in the bay area and is one of the most crowded in the world.
Second, around the emperor palace there is an high limit because the emperor family panorama is considered more important (mmmmmmm!!!!)
Third, I remember you that in Shinjuku there is a plan for a 350 meter building...and near Asakusa from 2008 they' ll build the tallest (not building) tower in the world 610 meter.

The mode gakuen building is simply amazing!! I think it will be one of the most famous buil. in Tokyo. Unfortunately it is just 200 meter and it will be not really visible among the others shinjuku buildings.
