Shinjuku during the last 35 years

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.

  1. sheerblade: yes, views are incredible. You can even see Mount Fuji if it’s a clear day.

    elyte: maybe is because LA or NYC skyscrapers are much older.
