Quora: Tokyo’s Best Kept Secrets

pressure-adjusting tank The good folks at Quora seem to keep asking the right questions. This week, it’s “What are Tokyo’s best kept secrets?” The quality of answer drops dramatically, but this week’s page is worth a visit if only for the dramatic pictures of Tokyo’s underground retention basins and discharge channels, built to protect the city from flooding. Apparently you can take a tour….

The pictures remind me of the work of large-format photographer Andreas Gursky’s work, who recently had a show at the National Art Center, Tokyo.
