Tokyo: City Life

Tokyo | City Life
●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●

I decided to start this photo thread for found pictures of Tokyo. It is based on the idea that I began with the city life thread of Hong Kong, and that is to showcase life in the city as opposed to skyline shots. This found set of Tokyo is just spectacular beyond belief. Just as a fan of urbanism and photography, I had to post some pictures. I showed this thread to one of my friends who is a semi-pro photographer and he was shocked. It is without a doubt amongst the most spectacular urban photography I have seen.

Tokyo: An Urban Fanatic's Wet Dream

No other city on Earth defines urbanity the way Tokyo does.

Tokyo's existing transportation infrastructure--especially the railway network--is mindbogglingly vast. And, much of it is evidently efficiently-run.
