Tokyo is a good example of a dual nature of cities. When you first encounter it, you get the impression of chaos: old buildings with one or two storeys next to 30-, 40- or 50-storey skyscrapers; pedestrians, cars, trains moving in all directions, each with its own trajectory. But then you realize that this seemingly chaotic structure provides a context for perfectly ordered human activities.
