Ryounkaku - old Tokyo skyscraper

Ryounkaku - Just a curiosity about the old Tokyo.

From Wikipedia:
Ryounkaku (凌雲閣 Ryōunkaku), lit. Cloud-Surpassing Pavilion or Cloud-Surpassing Tower) was Japan's first western style skyscraper that stood in the Asakusa district of Tokyo from 1890 until its demolition following the Great Kanto earthquake of 1923. The Asakusa Jūnikai (浅草十二階lit. Asakusa Twelve-stories), as it was called affectionately by Tokyoites, was the most popular attraction in Tokyo, and was a showcase for new technologies as it housed Japan's first electric elevator.

Very beautiful pictures. I find your handle to be offensive and condescending however. It is a term of the past and should no longer be used. Please consider changing your handle.

i think its so sad when some skyscraper is destroyed in a city, like this one in an earthquake, or the World Trade Center, its a great lost for the city
