"2013 JP Tower, Asakusa, Etc; 1991 Tsukiji, Naka-Meguro, Gakugei-Daigaku Station Area, Etc."

Very pressed for time this week, so I'm afraid I"ll have to be sparing with text - hopefully the videos will speak for themselves.  Notable in this batch are 2013 views of the recently opened (reopened?) remains of the former Central Post Office next to Tokyo Station (元東京中央郵便局).
People have mixed feelings about this, as many wanted to see the building preserved and while it's great that at least the facade and the front part of the building (by that I mean that a usable section going back a little - more than just the external face of the building) have been preserved, most of the rear of the building was removed to make way for an office tower (the JP Tower).  Personally, I think the result is pretty cool, and the front of the building goes well aesthetically and historically with the newly renovated/rebuilt Tokyo Station, with the Tokyo Station building representing 1914 Tokyo and the former post office building (now part of "JP Tower", the high-rise the facade is connected to) dating back to 1933.  Included in the video clips below are several views from the roof of the 1933 building showing Tokyo Station and the surrounding buildings of Marunouchi.
Also notable in this batch of videos are 1991 views of (yes, again, and I'll explain why in a second) Tsukiji.  I have recently posted videos of 1991 Tsukiji, but rather than just a repeat (on another day) this is a continuation of a pretty detailed look at the huge wholesale market, with (this time) views of the surrounding shops, restaurants, and offices, and also a view of the Saturday afternoon cleanup inside the market.

I was asked about how to find the the APA Hotel near Ningyocho Station, so I went out there and took a few clips to show the person who asked me how to find the hotel and what the station looks like, etc. (next five videos).

These next two were mainly taken as updates to the video I took a few years back showing how to get to the Sunroute Plaza Hotel in Shinjuku.  As I mentioned above, I'm pressed for time right now (I have a ton of things to do), so I'll have to try to edit this later with a link to that along with a better explanation.
