It was cold today, I was surprised the weather had been so good during the week. Today I had to wear a coat when I rode into the city. Anyway, good pictures Vapour! Have you travelled to all these cities in Japan?

Japan does seem to have quite a few skyscrapers which are poorly designed but recently the quality has been improving....

In Osaka all of these are worthy of mention -

Rinku Gate Tower
WTC Cosmotower
Mizuno Tower
Swissotel
Umeda Sky Building
Namba Parks Tower
Tsutentaku Tower
Crystal Tower (in Kyobashi)
Canon Hq (Umeda)

All of these towers are good quality. If only Osaka city council had ensured that they were all clustered together in Umeda (apart from the ancient Tsutentaku tower) then this city would have one hell of a skyline. Even though Umeda isn't too shabby, it would have helped if the WTC Cosmotower, Mizuno Tower and Rinku Gate tower were located there.

Imagine Umeda with all of these....it would probably rival Singapore in the skyline stakes....

I really like Kobe, especially the beef! lol.

Seriously, getting away to Kobe from the metropolis that is Osaka is seriously refreshing, you can smell the sea air, its cleaner and has a great waterfront. Around Sannomiya the nightlife is really buzzy without being overwhelming. If i was to live in Japan long term i would stay in Kobe.

the NHK building is just awesome.I jog past it most days before work.Very nice structure.

I do believe there is a museum on Osaka's 2000 year old history in the lower part of the building.Has anyone been there?

AWESOME! I love Osaka! My favorite city in Asia. I was there just 3 weeks ago and recognize where many of those pics were taken! I got friends who live in Kansai in Ikeda-shi and in the Sannomiya area of Kobe.
