Seems like we haven't had actual photos in a while...

I think all of these are cool, but none of them are mine!

A rather large train track area; helps show how large the infrastructure of the city is:


A nice overhead shot from SDTJ showing some of the more familiar areas of the city (to non-Tokyo residents at least):


I came across this, and it looks like the Yakuza street racers' hangout area from the movie The Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift:


I love Tokyo's density pictures; here is a good one, and that green building to the right has the same 9 rectangle structure system that Chicago's Sears Tower has...


...shown here:


I can't quite say why, but I really like this picture. It seems very "Tokyo" to me, which is weird considering I've never actually been there:


Finally, from Poly Technique, here is a scale model of the city. Those logos blocking out the faces are actually from an anime show called Ghost in the Shell. The anime is unique because nobody, not even the writers, understand it (I'm just kidding lol):

I do like the rooftop football/futsol field. Just hope that it's high enough so that the ball won't go over.

I think that building is called the "Izumi Garden Tower" which opened in 2002.

the government has decided to redevelop the area from Nihonbashi till Kabutocyo.
Nihonbashi has been the prime financial district of Tokyo for more than 300 years, and Kabutocyo is usually referred to as 'Tokyo's Wall Street.'
But the building in these areas are generally tiny and aging and decrepit, and is confronted with the threat by rising Otemachi and Toranomon.
Thus, the buildings in these areas are to be rebuilt into state-of-the-art huge skyscrapers.

Nihonbashi and Kabutocyo

you can see Bank of Japan (BOJ) HQ , Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE), Nomura Securities HQ, Nomura Holdings HQ, Merrill Lynch Japan Securities HQ, Daiwa Securities HQ, etc in this pic.

It's literally "visual crime".
They are everywhere, in front of the stations, near the elementary schools, near the hospitals, and near your house.
I really think Japan should ban rampant pachinko parlers and
only allow them to have their shops at limited "casino" areas.

You cannot avoid passing by at least one pachinko parlor every day if you walk on the street of Tokyo.
FULLY AGREE
Pachinko parlors and consumer finance companies (Sarakin) are both the national disgrace.
I feel exteme detestation for their existance. Especially, pachinko is the thing which disgusts me most in Japan.
Thses eyesores should be brought to destruction to hell.

Thank you for understanding, coldstar.

I will tell you guys another shocking fact about Pachinko parlors and consumer finance companies in Japan.

Majority of pachinko parlors and consumer lenders in Japan are owned by Korean immigrants.

TV asahi reported that Pachinko parlors in Japan consists of 50% South Korean owners, 30 to 40% North Korean owners, and 10% Japanese owners.

http://yellowpeep.blogspot.com/2007/...-industry.html

Majority of consumer lenders are also owned by North/South Korean immigrants.

The problem is,
they are exempted from any taxation in Japan as privileged foreigners.
According to their claims, they were forced to come and work in Japan
in early 1900's.
They insist that they are not obliged to pay any taxes to Japan because they are not Japanese
and they are victims of World-War II.

Although they are very rich, they never pay taxes and have been exploiting innocent Japanese citizens. Many of them keep sending enormous amount of money they earned from those consumer lenders/pachinko parlers to their home country, North Korea.

They are financially supporting the Kim Regime in North Korea and
it is a serious risk not only to Japan, but also to the world.

For the strong link between Pachinko and North Korea,
please see this report by U.S. Senate's website.

http://www.senate.gov/~govt-aff/052003wortzel.pdf

"Japan’s 18,000 Pachinko gambling parlors, some 30 percent of which are owned by ethnic North Koreans, bring in annual sales of $280 billion a year. Some of this money is also funneled into North Korea, although Japan is now tightening up on that practice."

Here is an estimation of gamble in Japan. http://www.crs.or.jp/58721.htm
The status was rondamly called to ask about an experience of gamble to
2,000 people who are over 20 years old in three days on July, 2006. They recieved 1,379 responces.

The list of gambles are pachinko, public lottery, horse race, bike race, motorboat race, auto race, and soccer loto.

1, Have you done gamble in a year?
Yes:37.2%(Male:46.6%/Female:28.3%)
No,21%(M:31.2%/F:51.3%)
No, but had an experience in the past:58.2%
Never:41.6%
The highest populality in ages:30-50(63~67%)

2, What kind of gamble have you done?(in famouse order)

A picture No,1(Type)
1, Public lottery:75.1%
2, Pachinko:39.7%
3, Horse race:15.7%
4, Bike race
5, Motorboat race
6, Soccer loto
7, Auto race
8, No comment

A picture No,2(Place) *same order as above

A black line in the graph is the answer of having an experience in 16 main cities in Japan.
A white line is other local cities.
A gray line is towns or villages

The reason I dislike pachinko is a lot of those shops relate with Japanese gang or something similar group, so they can get amount of money from the profit.

IT'S GOING TO BE THE TALLEST STRUCTURE IN THE WORLD AND

No. It's Nihonbashi branch office of The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ.
TSE is at the upper left.

The green road network plan

http://www.chijihon.metro.tokyo.jp/1.../PR/p06-07.pdf
http://www.chijihon.metro.tokyo.jp/1.../PR/p14-15.pdf

http://www.chijihon.metro.tokyo.jp/1.../PR/p44-45.pdf

Tokyo will replace green field to decrease CO2 and heat island problem among the density area by this decade. The statics is to catch fresh air into center area.
They'll plant over 50 million trees by 100 million. Total green area would be 700ha, twice as huge as Central Park. They'll also make green field on a roof of
building and the wall and set a solar power system. Public bus would change to use vaio gasoline soon. In addition, Umino mori island will be opened in Tokyo bay.

Making barrier free road

Tokyo has tackled with planting electric cables under the ground.
http://www.chijihon.metro.tokyo.jp/1.../PR/p08-09.pdf
http://www.chijihon.metro.tokyo.jp/1...4-3syou1-2.pdf

They will finish to hide it along main roads inside centre core area of Tokyo by this decade. Secound effect of natural disasters can be suppressed to the minimum.
