From Showa to Heisei and now, to Reiwa, Japan has suffered many changes and many have realized how the scenery gradually changes and became something completely different from how it was during the Showa Period.
Most of the changes can be considerably seen in the capital of Japan, Tokyo. The city has changed dramatically over time and the most famous spots, buildings, streets, shops have come and gone while the urban development kept taking place.
The city has now become a very convenient place to live in especially because it has flourished during the years.
However, people that were born in the Showa period, even the beginning of Heisei sometimes might find it difficult to accept some changes or have mixed feelings regarding the quick development of their hometown.
Even though at the beginning they might’ve felt excited and happy, with years passing by, they begin missing the old and start getting a bit lonely.
Gradually, old townscapes fade from our memory, so that’s why I want you to have a look at these beautiful pictures that will make you feel nostalgic and bring back Showa period’s beautiful scenery of Tokyo:
Nihonbashi is the bridge in the center of Edo and Japan and was established in 1604. Since then, it has been rebuilt many times and eventually became a national important cultural property in Heisei 11(1999).
