Bunkyo Civic Center
The Bunkyo Civic Center is, as far as we are concerned, the best spot in Tokyo to shoot Mt Fuji behind Shinjuku’s major skyscrapers. Open year round, and free for all since 1994, the Bunkyo Civic Center had a rather rocky start and today’s design is actually very different from the initial one! Indeed the first building, which opened in April 1959, was found in 1977 in violation of Japanese fire safety regulations and it was decided that it would make economic sense to blow-up the whole building and make a new one instead! Several years later, in 1994, that which was once the Bunkyo City Hall became the Bunkyo Civic Center as we know it today.
