My brother and Haripako sent me this video that shows how skyscrapers appear in Shinjuku (Tokyo) since 1969 until 2004.
Shinjuku’s financial area development during the last decades changed the city’s activity area from the “east side” to the “west side”. Lately, some new buildings are being built in the “west side” around Tokyo/Yurakucho/Ginza, maybe the main activity area will go back to the traditional center of Tokyo located around Nihonbashi.
I didn’t have 35 years to take pictures, but here there are some Shinjuku pictures I took during the last 3 years.
Found an article reading Pinktentacle where I discovered an artist expert in lithographies called Motoda Hisaharu. His works are really good, the level of detail is just impressive. He made a series of lithographies based on the hypothesis that Tokyo would be destroyed by a natural catastrophe. I took some of those lithographies and tried to find pictures I’ve taken from similar places.
Ginza 4-Chome crossing.
Ginza 4-Chome nowadays. The picture is taken a little bit “nearer” than the previous representation.
