Does Tokyo have a lot of eco friendly buildings?

    I lived in Tokyo for sometime and I do feel they are making much more of an effort to convert buildings to eco-friendly standards than American cities; the Japanese do feel a lot more pressure to do this than most Americans because they are so much more densely populated in so much smaller an area.  If you go to Tokyo pay attention to the roofs and porch areas: the Japanese cram plants and gardens where ever they can and greener roofs can equal lower temperatures.  There is a big solar panel movement with the government providing monetary incentives.  Buildings also receive an eco-rating based on things like insulation and the upkeep of the heating, water, and electric systems to ensure the greatest efficiency.
