The blue sky was reflected in the countless windows on the walls of Tokyo city hall

There are many skyscrapers in the Shinjuku subcenter in Nishi-Shinjuku, including the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building. The building in the photo is the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building, which has 48 floors above ground, and you can see the windows lining the walls. It's a huge building.

I wonder how many civil servants are working in this building every day. It must be quite a few. The huge structure looks cold and intimidating from up close. Looking at it reminded me of Franz Kafka's novel "The Castle." I hoped that perhaps the inside of this huge structure might be just as full of absurdity as Kafka's novel.
