Re: Tokyo pics

Hey, kuba, I really like the 9th and 10th photos you posted (the skyline shots) Even from the air, you can plainly see just how twisty the streets of Tokyo are.

Anyway, here's my contribution to this awesome thread:







All of these photos were taken by Kazuhiro Ito and can be found at his website

Sunshine60 is 240m high (60stories above ground ), which was the highest in Japan until 1991 but the 6th highest now.
Perhaps Sunshine60 is one of the unpopular skyscrapers in Tokyo.
That is because of the tasteless design and the location - not Tokyo Central and Tokyo Bay area, I think.
In addition, Sunshine60 has many a mystery and strange episode.

Sunshine60 was constructed in 1978. Before the construction, the site was Sugamo Prison, which accommodated 60 war criminals,including a former Prime Minister Hideki Tojo. They were executed on the top of 60 stairs. At first the building was planed for 70 stories, but it was rumored that some architect had altered the plan. It is also said the design of Sunshine60 represents the gravestone in Japanese style.
That's only one of episodes of the building.

Hong Kong comes to Tokyo !!!!

Now Tokyo is in the hotel construction boom.
Many famous hotel chains land on Tokyo one after another now . ....Four Seasons Hotel Marunouchi, Park Hotel Tokyo, Celestine Tokyo, Grand Hyatt Tokyo, Tokyo Prince Hotel Park Tower, the St. Regis Tokyo, The Ritz-Carlton Tokyo, etc.,
Above all, three hotels comes from Hong Kong in 2006, Surprisingly, the namea are Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts Tokyo, Mandarin Oriental Hotel Tokyo, and the Peninsula Tokyo !!!!

A decade ago, the top three hotels in Tokyo were the Imperial Hotel, Hotel New Otani Tokyo, the Hotel Okura.
but now, the top three is Park Hyatt Tokyo, Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo, and the Westin Hotel Tokyo.
Perhaps ten years later, the top three hotels in Tokyo will be the Peninsula Tokyo, The Ritz-Carlton Tokyo, and the St.Regis Tokyo.


Mandarin Hotel Tokyo - designed by Cesar Pelli.
