    Join a Unique Ginza Architecture Tour

    Join a Unique Ginza Architecture Tour This tour is a great way to see and learn about special buildings around Ginza, including some hidden gems which you may not find yourself. Having had very little exposure to architecture before, I think I can see structures in a different way after experiencing this tour.

    Ginza Nakagin Capsule Tower Tour

    Ginza Nakagin Capsule Tower Tour Loved this tour of the amazing Nakagin CapsuleTower! If you’re an architecture nut then don’t miss Japan’s only built example of a metabolist capsule tower! Yuka was very knowledgeable, kind and a wonderful guide. Plenty if time to take photos and ask questions. Highly recommend :)

    Join a Harajuku and Omotesando Architecture Tour I have lived in Tokyo for 2 years and visit Harajuku often, and I was still blown away by how much amazing architecture there is in the area I had never noticed/didn't appreciate. Our your guides were very knowledgable and pleasant and thanks to them my experience of living in Tokyo has been greatly enriched. A must for architecture buffs!!

    Join a Harajuku and Omotesando Architecture Tour

    Join a Harajuku and Omotesando Architecture Tour I had the pleasure of doing the Tokyo Architecture Walking Tour by Showcase with Yuki Deleon and her very capable assistant Yoshie. First and foremost, I really appreciated how Yuki customized the tour while we were on it and was completely willing to stop and look at something that seemed interesting and take detours if I wanted. Yuki even came up with a fantastic lunch location I would not have seen in a thousand years without them. We saw the expected Meiji Shrine, but it was the architectural and neighborhood details that made the tour so excellent, which I will list:
    The Yoyogi National Gymnasium (by Kenzo Tange)
    The Corp Olympia condos (the first million-dollar condos in Japan)
    Soft Bank office (I actually played with Pepper the robot)
    Tokyu Plaza (Kaleidoscope entrance, by Hiroshi Nakamura)
    The Iceberg Building (reportedly one of the seven wonders of architectures, by Benjamin Warner)
    Cat Street (formerly a river)
    The Gyre Building (swirling building, looks like NORI seaweed, by MVRDV)
    The Dior Building (acrylic drapery, by SANNA)
    The Japanese Nursing Association Building (crystal corn, by Kisho Kurokawa)
    A giant brass "Hershey's Kiss" protruding out of a ceiling in an alley, reportedly stretching downward all the way to Brazil, by architect/mathematician Hiroshi Sugimoto
    A quick stop for my daughter and granddaughter to Kiddy Land, one of the best toy stores in Tokyo (and of course loaded with Hello Kitty items) - NOT part of the official tour but Yuki said, "Sure, let's go in and take a look if you want."
    Omotesando Hills Building (silky concrete, by Tadao Ando)
    TOD'S (L-shaped building with the patterns of elm trees, by Toyo Ito)
    The Hugo Boss bulding (next to TOD'S, by Norihiko Dan)
    The PRADA headquarters (amazing diamond shape glass panels with a seismic system, by Herzog & Muron)
    Sunny Hills Building (Ate and then bought Oishii pineapple cakes from Taiwan, in an amazing wood structure, by Kengo Kuma who designed the main stadium for Tokyo 2020)

    Finally, be advised that if you are an English speaker you will be happy to know that Yuki lived in Minnesota for a long time and speaks completely fluent English, which of course made things easier. Can you tell I had a nice time? Highly recommended.
