Sure they have a ton of imported goods Asian size but the city itself is just fugly as hell.  Even their top hotels, which always embrace that overtried Scandinavian aesthetics, are not that interesting.

Japan has always been a place run by a select few into its modern history.  This level of centralization should make it easy to plan streets such that they become orderly and easy to nagivate.  The Japs adopted the "French system" for much of their industrial factories but when it comes to the city planning, they had no idea how to go about it.  The result is a ton of back alleyways and buildings sprouting up with no planning for navigation around them.  Vietnam, for all the stupidity experienced under communist rule, continues to have city planers paying tribute to the old French system of wide boulevards and logical intersections.  Even mainland Chinese cities look logical compared to anything from Japan.
