Tokyo Expressways 2 - near Opera City

Another picture of the Shuto Expressway. I really like this roadway especially with Opera City in the background, as it actually brings back quite a few memories. Whenever I see it, scenes from anime like Ghost in the Shell, Gundam, Akira, Appleseed and a whole pile of others flood into my mind - huge pieces of concrete and towers dominating the night sky! I think it is so easy to see where the creators of those classics got, and new ones get, their inspiration.
