Danke schön Herr Sengbush!!!! :master: :master: :master: :master:

Tokyo in 1968 (some from 1964)

Imperial Palace area













Hibiya douri / Shinbashi



















Night pictures from the Tokyo tower observatory!!



^That lonely scraper is the Kasumigaseki building (156 m/512 ft), Japan's first skyscraper completed that very year (1968)

Some 35 years later, the Kasumigaseki is still there in this picture from tokyoyakei.jp



(Bright box in the left)

These blurry ones below must be in Akasaka, right?



Ueno station















1964 Olympics!!
Swimming at one of Kenzo Tange's masterpieces!!





Night shots in Asakusa

































Kyoto in 1968





















There are many other pictures from Kyoto, but being focused in shrines, temples and the castle make little or no difference with today's images.

Around Osaka station - 1968











Hiroshima in 1968 (23 years after the bomb)







That's all. Mr. Sengbusch has also many pictures from 1984, I'll post those later.

:cheers:

It's funny, a forumer in the HHF has posted some tokyo series and the only real difference i see are the cars and the lack of skyscrapers

the red lights on the tops of japanese skyscrapers look so cool what are they for?
If I remember correctly, i think that the red lights are there to warn planes that fly into Haneda Airport. Or am I making an idiot of myself?
