Talk:Tokyo/Minato

From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search

Copied from Wikitravel:10 June 2004 by Evan

There's a description of the Tokyo Tower in Tokyo/Minato. A Google search for "Tokyo Tower" finds a lot of similar text. Especially http://metropolis.japantoday.com/BigInJapan/381/biginjapaninc.htm which includes the fragment

The Tokyo Tower has two observation galleries - a "main" one at 150 meters and a "special" one at 250 meters. On a fine - and relatively unpolluted - day

...

spectacular views of Mt. Fuji to the west, the Boso and Miura peninsulas (on either side of Tokyo Bay), the Hakone mountains and Mt. Tsukuba to the northeast.

Does this count as "too similar?" -- Colin 21:32, 10 Jun 2004 (EDT)

I think so. I'll blank the section, and let's copy this note to Talk:Tokyo/Minato. --Evan 23:59, 10 Jun 2004 (EDT)
Sorry about that. I pointed this student to Wikitravel. Sometimes it is tough to catch plagiarism with some of the more skilled writers. I knew he had looked at Wikipedia about Tokyo Tower, but not the Metropolis page. I didn't Google for phrases as he is usually a good writer anyway. I'll ask him about it and try to keep a closer eye on things. Thanks. Ted 23:11, 15 Jun 2004 (EDT)

Organizing this article better[edit]

I really think that "Minato-ku" is not a particularly good subject for a travel article, since the ward is so big and many of its area are really best lumped in with others. Specifically, here's the breakdown I'm thinking of:

  • Akasaka/Kamiyacho
  • Aoyama/Omotesando
  • Roppongi/Azabu
  • Shinbashi/Shiodome
  • Shirokane/Takanawa/Konan (perhaps in the "Shinagawa" article)
  • Shiba/Mita/Hamamatsucho
  • Odaiba

This would make more sense with regard to "what can be seen in XX area," no? - Sekicho 01:31, 23 September 2007 (EDT)

I agree that the current districts are terribibable, and there's been a lot of talk about redoing the whole city on Talk:Tokyo. Chip in! Jpatokal
