Tokyo in the 1980s

So... apparently Tokyo was going off in the 1980s.  The Japanese economy was booming and people didn't really give a shit.  Look at these tiny hotel rooms:

They invented Nintendo and calculator watches and Voltron (the giant robot warrior dude who is formed when five giant robot lions connect to form his arms, legs, and body.)

Plus Tokyo is basically Blade Runner.

Haruki Murakami also started getting super weird in the 1980s - he wrote Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World in 1985.
