静岡市役所(静岡庁舎)は、1934年竣工の本館(国登録文化財)と1987年竣工の新館からなり、本館の屋上に設けられたスペイン風ドーム付きの塔屋は「あおいの塔」と呼ばれ、静岡市のランドマークの一つとして親しまれています。
県庁所在地に限っていえば、戦前より使用されている市役所庁舎は全国に4棟しかないらしく、静岡市役所本館はそのうちの一つとなっています。新館建設の際には本館は取り壊しとなる予定でしたが長年親しまれてきた建物と景観を惜しむ声が大きく、内部を一部改装(市民課の書類交付窓口付近を催事等の展示スペースのための小部屋に作り変えた)した上で保存されることになりました。
本館南側には「憩いの広場」という小公園が整備されており、ここから市役所建築のおおよその景観を確認できます。

This panorama was taken in Japan

This is an overview of Japan

The eight islands of Japan sprang into existence through Divine Intervention.

The first two gods who came into existence were Izanagi no Mikoto and Izanami no Mikoto, the Exalted Male and Exalted Female. It was their job to make the land for people to live on.

They went to the bridge between heaven and earth and, using a jewel-encrusted halberd, Izanagi and Izanami churned up the sea into a frothy foam. As salty drips of water fell from the tip of the halberd the first island was formed. Its name was Onogoro.

So far, so good. But when Izanagi and Izanami first met on their island, Izanami spoke to Isanagi without being spoken to first. Since she was the female, and this was improper, their first union created badly-formed offspring who were sent off into the sea in boats.

The next time they met, Izanagi was sure to speak first, ensuring the proper rules were followed, and this time they produced eight children, which became the islands of Japan.

I'm sure you did not fail to miss the significance of this myth for the establishment of Japanese formal society.

At present, Japan is the financial capital of Asia. It has the second largest economy in the world and the largest metropolitan area (Tokyo.)

Technically there are three thousand islands making up the Japanese archipelago. Izanagi and Izanami must have been busy little devils with their jewelled halberd...

Japan's culture is highly technical and organized. Everything sparkles and swooshes on silent, miniaturized mechanisms.

They're a world leader in robotics, and the Japanese have the longest life-expectancy on earth.
