I decided to make a thread with all the completed towers in 2010, I also added a poll so you can pick your favorite. In the end we can see which building in Japan was the best of 2010, or maybe you don't like any of them.

Finding all the completed towers in all Japanese cities in 2010 was harder then I thought, somehow there isn't 1 list that has everything. But I managed to compile a list of 46 towers that are taller then 100m, there might be some missing but it's still a good result.

It's not surprising that Tokyo was the city where the most tower were completed this year. With 21 new towers in Tokyo prefecture (18 in the 23 special wards) it beat Osaka prefecture that only had 9 new towers. But it also means that 16 new towers where completed in other cities in Japan and that's not a bad result.

Tokyo pref - 21
Osaka pref - 9
Kanagawa pref - 4


Here's a quick list of all the completed towers, in the poll I only added the top 15 plus 5 others that stand out between all the other towers.

Please vote in the poll and post your top 3 in the thread.

I was torn between #5 and #11 but i voted #5 just because of its sheer size,it looks like you could fit the width of four normal skyscrapers in that thing lol,and there is just so much glass i love it.#11 is very cool also i really like the glass work on the lower half of the building.

Another building i really like is #25,it looks like there is big razor blades coming down the building.I love the design of this,if it was a bit taller and wider i would have voted for this one.

I also think #2 is cool it is very marunouchi/otemachi facade style.
It is also cool to see sendai get a nice skyscraper as well.

The buildings i really hate is #42 The Futako Tamagawa Rise Tower & Residence Tower Central/East.I think they look really outdated and cheesy,they look like the type of building you would find on a holiday resort in orlando florida,Hawaii or Spain,they are very 90's to me.

Thanks Momo for all your hard work,finding all these buildings is a good result.

Nice thread momo!! BTW you should add the statistic of how many 100m buildings in all of Japan like in the other thread ;)

P.S. is Sendai Trust the building on the right or left? Also #31 and #33 use the same picture.
They are both Sendai Trust towers but the tallest is the one that is 180m high.

As for the statistics, maybe when I'm completely snowed in that I can't go to work. And there's always http://www.blue-style.com/ but they don't have the total for Japan as a whole.

btw, I voted for the

Osaka Fukoku-Life Building, but I would have voted for the Chaska Chayamachi if it was a bit taller.

#5, although I think #11 is also pretty much up there (a little short though).

I also liked #18, #19, #20, and #21. #18 is particularly nice because it's pencil-thin, although the exterior is not so great.

Definitely the #11 in Osaka is the best, for me this is the top 3

1. #11| OSAKA 大阪 | Osaka Fukoku-Life Building 大阪富国生命ビル | 132.5m
2. #5| TOKYO 東京 | Central Parc Tower La Tour Shinjuku セントラルパークタワー・ラ・トゥール新宿 | 167.43m
3. #16 | SHIZUOKA 静岡 | Aoi Tower 葵タワー | 125m

By the way you put two times the #15, not the building, the number, so I guess is #16 the one in Shizuoka

La Tour Shinjuku is actually even more beautiful in real than what it looks on the picture. Really a perfect building. Its shape is not fully square so it has some character, but at the same time it integrates perfectly the skyline.

1. So I voted for it.
2. #25. I find it more beautiful each time I see it.
3. #20, I like its light color yet glassy style, and think it has a good balance.(Plus it's Japan HQ of my country's national airline, but that's not the reason).

#46 Chaska Chayamachi stunned me, I've rarely seen skyscraper with such unusual shape. I hesitated to put it in my top 3, but I'd like to see with my own eyes to judge...lol

My vote:
# 39 l Tokyo l Muromachi Higashi Mitsui wasn't on the list :(

La Tour Shinjuku was another favorite, but Muromachi's façade is just beautiful and seems to spice up its boring, square-ish shape while also giving the building a nice balance at the same time.

I voted for #11. It's shape reminds me of Washington Hotel in Sapporo but with a much, much better facade
