Tokyo Signs Two Posted by Scott 01/05/08 Some more wonderfully designed signage from Tokyo. Most of these were taken in the Harojuku area, a few are from Shibuya. The type and design of the subway system is incredible, so well thought out. More to come…. 27 Comments Leave A Comment 1 Joaquim Marquès Nielsen says: January 5, 2008 at 8:37 pm Wow, that “HP*annex” looks amazing! And the last image here (the red sign) – perfectly balanced.
