Wow, you can see a major difference between the 60's and 80's...the 80's looks much more consumer oriented and much more modern with all the lights, etc. Japan is the most consumerist society in the world.

wow, nice old pictures of them. Those bullet trains look like very classic! It didn't seem that crowded in the '60's, but more crowded in the '80's, see the difference? You know, I'm amazed by the photo quality of the '60's pictures, sharp and good color for its time, I guess Japan had better tech cameras and the '80's pictures in Japan looks like it was taken from a digital camera, sort of cuz of vivid colors and sharpness.

I disagree. Have a look at the country's saving rate, it's higher than most OECD nations.

Tokyo was already looked good way back then! Yes, in the 80's Tokyo looks more crowded since more Japanese move to cities due to industrialization.

Wonder if we put the pic of today's Tokyo it will be more interesting!

Great Pics!

Strange, even though I grew up in the US (was a small child in the 1980s), those 80s photos from Japan make me feel nostalgic. I suppose in 20 years people will feel the same way about this decade.

Yes, train stations of villages, but I don't think Tokyo was a village in the 60s if it's now a 30 millions inh. city.
