This thread is beautiful! I really do love the way Japanese cities can be so busy and yet so calm and peaceful. I too really like the mix of old and new, so far I've seen this mostly in Kyoto as far as big cities go. Maybe Tokyo but not to this extent.
I'd love to visit Kyoto at some point. Unlike cities such as Osaka, Nagoya, and Tokyo, it avoided extensive bombing during the second world war, so instead of modern western style buildings there is a lot of remaining prewar architecture.
