Bunkyo Civic Center is Ward office of Bunkyo-Ku,Tokyo,Japan.
This is a large building.

There is observatory in 25th floor.

This is one of my favorite.It’s looks like Ukiyoe.
I think this is contemporary “Fugaku Sanjurokkei”(means Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji) by Hokusai Katsushika.
He is a Japanese artist in Edo period.
Because I respect him very much,I want to complete contemporary “Fugaku Sanjurokkei”.
