Sights of Japan (Tanaka)

Landmarks, both ancient and modern, from all across Japan, with Mount Fuji at the top, and Tokyo Station taking the central place in the foreground. The picture is crammed with little details, to make this a very enjoyable puzzle.

Born in Tokyo in 1957, Tanaka graduated from Musashino Art University, and has achieved considerable success as an illustrator. His series of omnibus portrayals of famous sights has been widely adopted for use in jigsaw puzzles produced both in Japan and elsewhere: these are lively images, bending perspective at will to capture the essence of a location.

Naoki is his given name.

* This puzzle has smaller pieces than the standard size.

Tokyo has its share of landmarks — the historic red-brick station features prominently, and the scene is crowded with other buildings, ancient and modern. Of course there is also Mount Fuji in the distance.

This new (2012) version of the Tokyo puzzle in 1000 full-size pieces is updated to include the latest landmark, Tokyo Sky Tree, which at 634 metres is the second-highest structure in the world.
