Tokyo municipality

Unlike narrow streets and low buildings scattered, as it came throughout Tokyo, in the western part of the synjuk, wide and spacious avenues and high skyscrapers. There is a famous Tokyo municipality.

Instead of the army of tourists with cameras, you will meet people in strict costumes, in white shirts and of course in expensive ties. And this means that the city municipality is located here, in other words, the main administrative building of the city. The building was built in 1991, and consists of two towers in 48 floors, the length of the building reaches 243 meters. The headquarters of the city municipality is one of the latest creations of the Japanese architect Kenzo Tange. Incredibly, in this administrative skyscraper there is an observation deck, it is available all year round and officials are already accustomed to constant streams of tourists. From the observation deck, in clear weather, you can see Mount Fuji and many attractions of the city of Tokyo itself. The municipality of the city of Tokyo is not afraid to accept new ideas and looks at the problems of the city in a modern way. For example, with a lack of electricity, the Tokyo municipality introduced a new work schedule, according to which the first shift of employees began at 7 hours 30 minutes, and finished at 16 hours and 15 minutes. Thus, the city authorities reduced the consumption of electricity in their building, by as much as 25 percent. The building of the municipality is five minutes from the main railway station and has a restaurant with a beautiful view of the city. In front of the building, you can see a monument from bronze by Lord Dokan Ota, who built the castle of Tieod, who later received the status of the Imperial Palace. The population of the city is quite their government and the current city development course. The city government takes care of the population and annually spends huge amounts on the support of cleanliness and order in the city. With such a population and a constantly growing number of tourists, it is not easy to maintain cleanliness and order, but the authorities are copeing. To control all industries and to solve the problems of the city and citizens, about 3,000 people work in the city municipality of the city of Tokyo. Incredible, but you need to try to find an uncleaned street in the morning, or a bad road, even the lanterns are all burning. The city has only one big problem, prices are biting here, it is noticeably immediately upon arrival at the airport, for an average of taxi you will have to pay $ 50, not less. The authorities have long been fighting high prices in the city, but so far without success.
