We Stand United


Our Shinjuku skyscrapers looming above the city.

From the left is Mode Gakuen Cocoon Tower (newly built in 2008), Shinjuku Center Building (the tallest of the four buildings at 54 stories), Shinjuku L Tower (closest to the station), and Sonpo Japan Headquarter Building (also called "bell bottom bldg" because of its shape).

Even though I really like seeing this view...I was glad to leave all this behind and head home to start my weekend. Happy Friday to you all!
Enjoy looking at more beautiful skies all around the world here.

  1. I love this scenery completed with an impressive cocoon building against blue sky. It seems a symbolic space in Syinjyuku.

  2. They do appear to almost be hugging each other. Definitely a close-knit friendship. :))

  4. I like the unusual shape of the Cocoon and the overall beauty of this picture. By the way to name a building 'bell bottom' like the old jeans is too cool: you have to post some more about this tower!

  13. A stellar cityscape against the skyscape photo, Kaori! And now I'm curious who is the main architect of that cocoon design.

  15. Kaori, I love this expression, looming above the city. Very poetic and romantic. Beautiful sunset over Shinjuku!

  16. @Francisca:

    The architect of Cocoon Tower is Tange Associates founded by the late Tange Kenzo. (The link is at the above link under “Design” or here).

    Kaori showed us other of this architect’s buildings on April 22, 2011 here.

  17. Thanks, Tall Gary. I'm not at all surprised it won the Skyscraper of the year award in 2008! The earlier skyscraper Kaori posted was also good, but I like this one better.
