Tokyo City Hall

Tokyo city hall

The city hall is a skyscraper

Shot in the city of Shinjuku, Tokyo.

The building in the photo was the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building built in 1990. It was designed by Kenzō Tange, one of the famous architects in this country. The height is 243m and once it was the tallest building in Japan.

When I saw this building, I always thought the authority poured money into a bottomless pit. It was the booming period when it was constructed. Unfortunately, the authority is not financially sound just like the old days.
