Tokyo in 1935

This is a video of Tokyo before it was totally destroyed in the Second World War. My impression is that it was much more beautiful than now and it had a much more European style than nowadays.

The video shows Asakusa and Nihonbashi areas at east Tokyo that were the most popular places before the war, nowadays they’ve been replaced by Shibuya and Shinjuku at west Tokyo.
