While following Tomatsu Line from Makino District we arrive at Asumi Downtown Station where Tomatsu Line, Saito Line and the circular Belt Line interchange.
On the left Kazeoka Hill with its temples and shrines, on the upper left corner Makino District and on the upper right corner East Asumi, on the lower right corner Inoue District and Hirohashi Tower.
In the center of the picture the highrises full of offices of the downtown. (click for full resoluton)
Urban canyons and glass skyscrapers: Asumi Downtown it's the typical landscape that tourist magazines use to describe the modern "Hong Kong of the North"
Asumi Downtown station is one of the busiest station in the country, from here you can interchange with Tomatsu Line (color Orange, tracks number 1 and 2), Belt Line (color Green, tracks 3 and 4) and Saito Line (color blue, tracks 5 and 6).
The current design of the station and the plaza were part of a renewal plan in 1999.
Although Hirohashi is a city with few cars roads in the downtown can be very busy: that's why may elevated or undeground crossing points are present.
Among the companies that have their headqarters in Asumi Downtown there are philipino Talavera Insurance and hHirohashite Asian Mobile Voice (AMV). You can see their office in this picture
Towers with many differents shapes mirror themself in the cold waters of the river
Just behind the station starts Kazeoka Hill. since laws forbid to built highrises on elevated terrains the foot of the hill are full of small residential houses.
Built in the very center of the state those house, although small, are very epensive and the residents are mostly CEOs of the nearby companies.
In this pic you can see the western outskirts of the district and parts of our next entry: Horie District.
