Tokyo is a great city indeed! I was there in 2002. Shibuya rocks, Roppongi is crazy at night, and gotta love the looks of them Harajuku girls. Gotta say that times are a changing quickly, and a few top Chinese cities are catching up to Tokyo.

As for Lack of green space..this area is in tokyo.

高尾山;Mount Takao. This place got 3/3 stars in Michelin guide and it's on the very edge of "tokyo". There are temples near the top.

These pictures are from the same day as above, walking in Chiyoda towards Minato (where tokyo tower is).

I think this is a government building but I forgot




National diet building





















This area is called "Atago Green hills"(愛宕グリーンヒルズ) in Minato, tokyo.

Atago Green Hills continued.. This is "Atago shrine"(愛宕神社) which was built in 1603 by Shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu. According to a sign i saw there it is the highest point in tokyo.

















Skyscraper seen from Shrine



Walking thru Atago Green Hills to Tokyo Tower I stumbled upon other temples



















Here is a video I took of the area above, but it was really rocky so it's too bouncy maybe.

阿波踊り(あわおどり)とは約400年の歴史があり、徳島県(旧・阿波国)内各地の市町村で開催される盆踊りである。なかでも徳島市の阿波踊りが県内最大規模で最も有名であり四国三大祭り、日本三大盆踊りの1つに数えられる。また日本三大阿波踊りとして徳島、高円寺、南越谷の各阿波踊りが挙げられる。

The Awa Dance Festival (阿波踊り, Awa Odori?) is held from 12 to 15 August as part of the Obon festival in Tokushima Prefecture on Shikoku in Japan. Awa Odori is the largest dance festival in Japan, attracting over 1.3 million tourists every year.

^ Though I took these pictures/video of Awa Odori in Saitama not Tokushima in west japan.



The singing is old style

The Suginami pictures definitely captures the essence of the area. Brought back a lot of memories when I lived there. As for greenery, much of the western part of Tokyo is considered inaka.

as for me personally, I like cities in Kansai over the Kanto region, I'm sure Nihon will agree

I like Kanto.

I guess Suginami is a nice area, although I've never been.
Edogawa is a great place.
