Tokyo Modern Architecture #5

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.

It was a five year wait for the follow up to the original 2012 ‘Tokyo Modern Architecture‘ post and then ‘#2‘ and ‘#3‘ followed in 2017. ‘#4’ appeared last year and here, in no particular order, is the next volume of interesting looking Japanese buildings including the addresses:

1. Urban Prem Minami Aoyama, 3-8-5 Minami Aoyama, Minato-ku.

2. Ao Building, 3-11-7 Kita-Aoyama, Minato-ku.

3. Kamakura Seisakusho Headquarters Building, 2-7-11 Minami-Aoyama, Minato-ku.

4. NTT DoCoMo Shinagawa Building, 2-1-65 Konan, Minato-ku.

5. United Nations University Omotesando, 5-53-70 Jingumae, Shibuya-ku.

6. Asakusa Culture Tourist Information Center, 2-18-9 Kaminarimon, Taito-ku.


7. Mind Wa A, 2-27-27 Izumi, Suginami-ku.

8. Edo Tokyo Museum, 1-4-1 Yokoami, Sumida-ku.
