I stopped over returning on the trip to Hokuriku at Nagoya Station and took this photograph plaza near station.
Completed in late 1999, the JR Central Towers are Nagoya's new landmark, elegantly rising above Nagoya Station. The building consists of the 245 meter tall Office Tower and the slightly shorter and slimmer Hotel Tower.
The building's lower floors are shared between the two towers and house a Takashimaya department store, the Tower Plaza shopping mall and JR Nagoya Station. True to their names, the Hotel Tower houses a Marriott hotel, while the Office Tower provides 30 floors of rental office space.
Formerly an observation deck, the top floor of the Office Tower has been converted into the "Panorama Salon", featuring a cafe, wine lounge, beauty salon and health spa with great views over the city. Likewise, the Hotel Tower offers a lounge and restaurant with nice views on its top floor.

the chosen POV make the view of the twin towers in Nagoya,make them even more effective. I like the clarity of the image as the modern of the building.

Was in Nagoya years ago, and I definitely did not see this.
The building is interesting as there are round towers on a rectangular podium

An imposing high rise buildings nicely framed in fine detail and the subtle light really adds so much to the image. The perspective is excellent, converging verticals increase the depth superbly and building looks even heigher. Sharp and crispy clean lines, shapes, and repeats. The contrast agaisnt blue sky is awesome. Beautiful color tones and good contrast . Great capture, congrats.

Those modern towers are a symbol of the new times, and from such perspective are a nice view. Good work, congratulations!
