I came across this video which might prove useful as reference material.
It's a demonstration video from 1992 (which is very similar to 1988, generally speaking) and it's this crazy new "HDTV" thing the kids are so wild about these days.
So it's 1992 Tokyo in glorious 1080p60. Which actually gives a better impression of the big city in all it's hustle and bustle than any library of photos ever could.

I've been meaning to build in Bankenshima but still can't get it to work.

Although it's not exactly made for Japan, I suggest that you designate this world as an Asian Vacation World, so that it gives the lighting and ensures that only Asian-esque names are assigned. When you assign a Vaction designation, all spawned Sims use a special template for that world to ensure immersion. In other words, your maids in Shang Simla will actually look Asian every time, or all French maids in France would be white. This is critical for a World set in an exotic location.

Also, there's actually a Japanese Trait on here that allows Sims to sit on their knees, bow, and use other special traits. By designating this World as an Asian Vacation World, you will also assign the Asian Culture Hidden Trait to everyone automatically, allowing them to eat with chopsticks and sing Oriental tunes.

So is there still life in this? I'm inclined to say not but would like to be proven wrong.

Sorry for the lack of update posts in the last months. I've paused the work in BS during this time to work on Cosmópolis and a new project I had the idea early this year.
Now most of my focus on Bankenshima are in the slums and the suburbs (aka the places with a sh#t ton of small buildings, making them as dense as Downtown). I'm also experimenting some techniques for building traditional and Meiji-era structures (mostly stores with an apartment upstairs), and I can say the Meiji ones are pretty fun to build, as I can experimentate with shapes, color schemes and textures. But my favorite building so far is the National Museum.
New pictures coming next month, I hope. And thanks for the comment!

Well as you've probably noticed you're not the only one who's been building a 1980s-themed urban world so I love seeing what you're building and should I ever be able to get Bankenshima running I'll definitely be pitching in a few lots myself. I'm pretty well versed in postmodernism by now.

This is exciting, and I'd love to help.

I would reccomend, BTW, setting it so that everyone spawns with the Asian Culture Trait and, possibly, the famous Japanese Culture Trait Mod that someone on here made some time ago. Similar to how the "MAKESIM" command creates a Chinaman in Shang Simla as opposed to a generic Townie like in a normal World, do you think it's possible to mark a World as a custom destination, in order to have a template all Sims are based off of? If not, is it possible to mark a custom World as Chinese, so that it uses Shang Simla templates when generating Sims?

I don't want to see a black Maid or a white Mixologist working in my Japanese town.
