Watch The Growth Of Shinjuku From 1969-2004
I just came across this really cool video of the growth of of Shinjuku from July 1969 to July 2004. My apologies if you have seen it posted elsewhere before. It's crazy how much it changed in just a few decades.
For those of you who don't know, Shinjuku is one of the 23 wards in Tokyo. It is home to the busiest train station (Shinjuku Station) in the world by daily commuter traffic; used by over 3.6 million people per day. It also home to the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building which houses the Tokyo city government. More importantly (at least for tourists) you can go up the both Towers free of charge for great panoramic views of Tokyo.
