310 shops and restaurants in the whole complex.


And by popular demand, some more aerial shots.

It is amazing, but at the same time it shows that Tokyo doesn't really have the same massive sea of skyscrapers that Shanghai and Sao Paulo have. Of course there's nothing wrong with that but I didn't really know that Tokyo was in a different league in that department.

Different league? lol. I don't know what kind of sea of skyscrapers you are dreaming of, but definitely tall buildings are all around the place, just look at the center of the photo.
Technically speaking, Sao Paolo doesn't have a real skyscraper yet if we count them as 200+. Just bunch of 130-160 buildings that look all rusty and old, no glass, just concrete.

As far as I know Tokyo is the third city in the world by number of +100m towers (after New York and Hong Kong, I think). Maybe you donīt "see" that because Tokyo doesnīt have just one financial district, so towers are scattered through various areas. Same with residential towers.

Of course, those aerial photos make building look tiny. Look at the +600m Sky Tree, not that impressive from that long distance

I'll separate this into 2 posts:

Progress on the ground

It's a bit difficult to see since many trees don't have their leaves (winter) but there's many Sakura trees planted and the other trees are japanese red pine.
