NAGATACHO:

Nagatachō ( "Eternal Rice Field Town") is a district in Chiyoda Ward, near Imperial Palace. This is the location of National Diet Building (Kokkai-gijidō), that houses the Diet of Japan (the parliament) and the Kantei, the Prime Minister's residence that is housed in a huge, 5-storey solar paneled modern glass building from 2003. The National Diet Bldg was built in 1936, a neo-classical white building with columns and a pyramid on top. Sessions of the House of Representatives take place in the left wing and sessions of the House of Councillors in the right wing. Guards stand at the gates. The Supreme Court of Japan is located in neighboring Hayabusachō. Nagatachō's name is often used to refer figuratively to the Japanese government, as opposed to Kasumigaseki which refers to the administration. Several embassies can be found in the area, and during the Edo period the residence of samurais.
Sanno Park Tower (194m, 44 floors) and Prudential Tower (158m, 38 floors) are the most significant skyscrapers. Sanno Park Tower faces the prime minister's residence, so no windows face it.

TOKYO SKYTREE AND IT’S VIEWS:

Tokyo Skytree, built in 2012 is not only the tallest structure in Japan, it is also the world’s tallest tower! It is also the second talles structure of the world (after Burj Khalifa in Dubai). With a height of 634m to the spire (451m to the top floor), 450 floors and a neofuturistic cylindrical shape, it has become a new landmark of Tokyo. It is situated East of the city center, in Sumida ward (East of Sumida River). Skytree is almost twice as tall as Tokyo’s second tallest structure, the much older, Eiffel Tower looking Tokyo Tower from 1958, that couldn’t broadcast digital signals anymore. That is why the Skytree was built. It really stands out on the skyline, since most skyscrapers are not more then 1/3 as tall as the tower. The exterior of the tower is often illuminated in blue at night, mostly in blue but also shifting colours. The cost of building the structure was 600 million USD but it took only four years to build (2008-12). There are 13 elevators totally. There is a mall and a metro station at the tower. It was developed by Tobu Railways and designed by the architect Nikken Sekkei.

There are several observation decks:

Tembo Deck is the lower observation deck at floor 340-350. The large and fast elevator to reach it is called the Tembo Deck, and features a window in the roof with views upwards towards the illuminated elevator shaft. From the deck you can watch thrilling 360 degrees views of this amazing super metropolis, especially impressive at night with all the illuminated landmarks and dazzling lights of Tokyo!

Tembo Galleria is a walking passage on floor 445-450, 450m up in the sky! It is sloping upwards and goes around the tower, with glass windows featuring amazing views of the whole Tokyo! Blue led lights on the floor mark the way up to the summit, called Sorakara Point. On the top there is a skybar, a souvenir shop and a glass roof where you can look down on the ground through a glass window.

Thanks. We went to Harajuku twice, once in the evening and once daytime on a Monday.

GINZA

Ginza is a shopping district in central Tokyo, part of the Chuo ward, that is very typical Tokyo for the visitor, despite getting critisim for being too western already in the 1880s, when the street was filled with lowrise brick buildings and trams.Ginza is filled with neon lights, expensive brand stores and some of the largest departments stores, like Wako (with the iconic Hattori Clock Tower), Mitsukoshi, Hankyu, Seibu and Matsuya, boutiques, restaurants and coffeehouses. Gucci, Chanel, Dior, Apple and H&M all have department stores here, some really tall and narrow. Ginza 6 (or G Six) is a large 12-storey brand new shopping arcade that features 241 stores, restaurants and a rooftop terrace with views. It was built in 2017.Tokyu Plaza is another large complex, with a sloped glass facade.

The core of Ginza is the famous Ginza Crossing, that is one of Tokyo’s most typical symbols, especially the San-ai Building with its circular shape and neon lights. On weekends some of the roads around the crossing are closed for traffic. We visited the Sony Showroom and the Nissan Showroom with futuristic concept cars. Ricoh has their headquarters in the Ricoh building. Kabuki-za Theatre is one of the few historical looking buildings in oriental style in Ginza. It is the principal theater for the kabuki drama form. It was originally built in 1911, rebuilt in 1950, then demolished and rebuilt again in 2013 to survive earthquakes. Ginza is a very expensive area to eat and shop.
Shibuya is a ward and a district, just south of Shinjuku, mostly famous for the Shibuya Crossing, where crowds of people are crossing from all sides at the same time. Surrounding this intersection are Shibuya Station, large buildings with neon lights, department stores and skyscrapers. Tower Records, a large record department store is located in the area.  Shibuya is know for its fashion stores and nightlife for young people. Shibuya 109 is a circular landmark building in one intersection, housing a tall department store for young women. In the 11th century Shibuya was the site for the castle that resided the Shibuya family. Omotesando is a tree-lined avenue with fashion stores and malls with significant architecure, and the venue for the annual St Patrick’s Day parade.
In the Sendagaya district of Shibuya, you find NTT DoCoMo Yoyogi Building, one of Tokyo’s greatest landmarks. It is a 272m tall skyscraper with a clock tower and spire, built in 2000, that is extending the Shinjuku skyline and can be seen from many parks.

ASAKUSA:
- Sensoji Temple, Pagoda, Nakamise-dori, Ekimise, Kaminarimon St, Asakusa Station

Asakusa Culture Tourist Information Center, Orange Street
Asakusa is a district in the Taito ward, mostly famous for the Senso-ji Shrine, a buddhist temple. Senso-ji is Tokyo’s oldest and most significant temple with its red colour and pagoda. It is a very popular tourist attraction and the centerpiece piece of Tokyo’s largest and wildest festival, Sanja Matsuri. Women dressed as geishas can be seen in the area, of which 45 active working. Asakusa has a character of a Chinese area, especially Kaminarimon Street and the rest of the area around the station. Above Asakusa Station is the shopping mall Ekimise, anchored by a Matsuya department store. This is the station where we approached the train to Nikko.
Asakusa Culture Tourist Information Center is a 7-storey building with tourist information, that also offers great views of Tokyo. The wooden architecture is very special, it was designed by Kengo Kuma & Associates and built 2009-2012.
There are several shopping arcades in traditional Japanese style around the temple, with markets, shops and cafés. Nakamise-dori is the most famous one, facing the temple, 250m long with 89 shops. There are many ryokans, other shrines and traditional restaurants (we visited one of them) in the area. Asakusa has a greater concentration of buildings as old as from the 1950s and 60s then other parts of Tokyo. People celebrating a buddhist ceremony passed by and entered the station while we bought tickets. There is also a large Brazilian presence in the area. Boat cruises along Sumida River departs from the river banks of Asakusa. Tokyo Skytree, the world's tallest tower, can be seen from most parts of Asakusa as it is situated just on the other side of Sumida River.

Lots of great buildings. I like the style of this one:




Many of the Tokyo highrises are so thick. Absolute Units:

Thanks! Yes, Japan is my favourite of all countries I have visited. And Tokyo might be the greatest city on Earth, due to the mix of urbanity and kindness!

AZABU-JUBAN:

Just South of Roppongi is Azabu-Juban, a nice lively residential area with Japanese shops, restaurants, cafés and supermarkets. Azabu-Juban has somewhat of a smalltown feeling with a lower tempo the the surrounding areas.
