Crazy Photos of Japan Then and Now


Japan underwent one of the most rapid periods of industrialization and urbanization of any country in the modern era. ┬áIn the aftermath of World War II, Japan’s technological innovations combined with their population growth and lack of physical space caused real estate prices to soar and the development of giant metropolises in cities such as Tokyo.

In this amazing photographic series, you’ll get to see Japan, both then and now, to see what changes have occurred.

  • Those are pretty cool images, crazy to see such transformation. I wanna go check it out myself someday.
