Tokyo Modern Architecture #2

For all its good points, Tokyo ain’t half one ugly looking city with buildings pretty much erected (and pulled down) willy nilly without any thought to the environment around it. However, amid all the chaos of such a concrete jungle there are a fair few examples of modern architecture which I am ever keen to photograph. Now, I am certainly no expert on such a topic but have enjoyed going around capturing the interesting and weird designs of some of these buildings.


This is the long awaited follow up to original ‘Tokyo Modern Architecture‘ post in July 2012 which included 10 different buildings including the two seen seen above. Here, in no particular order, is the next volume of interesting looking Japanese buildings including the addresses:

1. Yokoso Rainbow Tower Building, 3-20-20 Kaigan, Minato-ku.


2. Reiyukai Shakaden Temple, 1-7-8 Azabudai, Minato-ku. More details here


3. Nezu Museum, 6-5-1 Minami-Aoyama, Minato-ku.


4. Ueno Park Koban, 4-53 Ueno-Koen, Taito-ku.
