Windows Of Tokyo City Hall

Tokyo Metropolitan City Hall
Shot in the city of Shinjuku, Tokyo tetsuOzawa

The windows of Tokyo City Hall reflected the blue sky

There are many skyscrapers in this district. The Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building is standing among them. The architecture in this photo is that.

The wall is filled with many windows and it is so tall that I wonder how many civil servants are working in this building. It dominating appearance reminds me the novel 'Das Schloss' which was written by Franz Kafka. Perhaps, the inside of this building was riddled with the irrationalness like the novel.


What is The Castle (novel)?

The Castle is a 1926 novel by Franz Kafka. In it a protagonist known only as "K." arrives in a village and struggles to gain access to the mysterious authorities who govern it from a castle. Kafka died before he could finish the work, but suggested it would end with K. dying in the village, the castle notifying him on his death bed that his "legal claim to live in the village was not valid, yet, taking certain auxiliary circumstances into account, he was permitted to live and work there."
