Tokyo Modern Architecture #3

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.

Earlier this year I posted ‘Tokyo Modern Architecture #2‘ as a long-waited follow up to the original ‘Tokyo Modern Architecture‘ post in July 2012. There are 20 buildings featured in those two posts and here, in no particular order, is the next volume of interesting looking Japanese buildings including the addresses:

1. Rissho Kosei-kai Headquarters, 2-11-1 Wada, Suginami-ku.

2. Dai 2 Ridō Building, 3-15 Sumiyoshicho, Shinjuku-ku. 

3. Sankei 75 Building, 2-20-9 Kabuchicho, Shinjuku-ku.

4. Sugamo Ohdai Kannon-do, 3-20-1 Nishisugamo, Toshima-ku.


5. Porsche Center Aoyama, 3-11-13 Minamiaoyama, Minato-ku.

6. Tokyo Moto-Akasaka Building, 1-1-16 Motoakasaka, Minato-ku.


7. Iidabashi Station (Toei Ōedo Line), Bunkyo-ku.


8. Fuji Latex Honsha Building,  3-19-1 Kanda Nishikicho, Chiyoda-ku. 

9. The National Showa Memorial Museum, 1-6-11 Kudanminami, Chiyoda-ku.

10. Toyosu Station, 4-1-1 Toyosu, Koto-ku.

Bonus: Masuii House, 3-2-5 Nakaaoki, Kawaguchi-shi (Saitama).

    Wow. That last one does not look that safe in a country that has a lot of earthquakes.
