You have add to this list all polish subforum. I've made to Osaka good advertisement by my pics there

202. One of the gates of Chinatown, the biggest one in Japan (but there are not many Chinese ppl left).


203. Japanese electricity "culture". Why there are so many cables? I guess because of earthquakes? Anyway, after some days I wasn't noticing that, even a little liked it (?).


204. Chinatown is so colorful.

211.


212.


213. I love Japanese public spaces, so simple pavements... in Poland many architects design dappled flooring, in Japan they understand, that this is only a background for city life.


214. One more shot of Chinatown, we were coming back to harbor to take a ferry for Yokohama station area, and then take a train to Minato Mirai again for getting Landmark Tower.


But this is a story for next set :-).

231. I liked this parking elevation - simple, but good looking.


232. Once again a way to Landmark, this time to get it.


233. I like that roofing.


234. So we're going up, 1000Y for entry. There is the fastest japanese elevator in Landmarku tower, riding with velocoty of 750m/min. The last 69 floor we'd get with only 40 seconds... I don't have such moment on my pics, but it was so cool - there was a hostess in elevator, first saying "Arigatou" (with japanese bow) before entering it, and then talking about smth (like velocity or elevator or history of Landmark?). Culture :-)


So you know what will be next :-)

Yokohama should make those open pavement spaces into greenery.

And I'm not talking about the air polution wise here. Simply the streets, corners, ect are well clean.

I've visited Osaka two times and I dislike two times. For me is the perfect anti-japanese city, is more spanish than japanese because it is more dirty and chaotic.

235. We're on top. Observatory is divided into 4 rooms, like on the pic below (one of them is skybar). I have many pics from observatory, can't choose, so be ready ;-)


236. Observatory is very popular place for tourists.


237. My only photo of hostess in observatory ;-)

You told me your opinion already but I think it's over exageration . Osaka is even more train oriented than Tokyo!

Anyway let's not make it city vs city...everybody has different opinions like kaspric and I like Osaka the most...while many others hate it. I was just interested in the clean comment since I never heard that about kyoto and osaka before.

Kaspric thanks for the pictures....but even in the pictures Yokohama looks boring to me T_T (you see? It's another opinion! I know some people who think Yokohama is best city in Japan!).

Yeah, I agreed with You before. But what do you mean, shouldn't I post nighty pics of Yokohama and go straight to the next stop (Shibuya by night)??
