Skylines



5. Tokyo , Japan Metro/Urban Population: 32.0 million Tokyo is the world's most populated city. Its skyline has a
number of unique characteristics that set it apart from
other big city skylines, among them 15 structures at over
200 meters tall (including the Tokyo Tower which changes
colors every night). But because of the density and vast
size of the city, every corner appears to have its own skyline.
With the height restrictions and the required red lights that
flash atop all mid to tall-sized buildings, make the city look
spectacular at night. Tokyo is filled with neon lighting and
unique, contemporary architecture, and like New York
City is also often portrayed in movies for its aesthetic and
eye-catching cityscapes. Interesting fact: Tokyo houses the
world's largest fleet of helicopters to get around town if
traffic gets too crazy.
