Tokowa-so is an apartment with legendary manga artists.
It was dismantled in 1982 due to ageing.
But the locals wished to rebuild the building.
After a long time, that dream finally came true this year.
It is a manga museum that faithfully reproduces Tokiwa-so.
Surprisingly, the cost is financed by donations.

All the manga artists in Japan respect Tokiwa-so.
That’s because this apartment is the source of Japanese comics.

Nippori is a downtown of Tokyo.
There are a lot of shops that specialize in textiles.
They are also professional shops, but anyone can shop there.
There are more than 90 stores there.
Of course, the number of products is enormous.

If you enjoy window shopping, that’s fine too.
But if you want something, you should investigate in advance.
If necessary, ask to us.

Message from our Customer:Nakagin Capsule tower

申し訳ありません、このコンテンツはただ今 アメリカ英語ドイツ語 のみです。 For the sake of viewer convenience, the content is shown below in this site default language. You may click one of the links to switch the site language to another available language.

Nakagin Capsule tower is currently in crisis situation.
This building was built by a famous architect,Kisho Kurokawa,in 1972.
It is a capsule-type apartment house and is very unique.
Now it is a demolition crisis.

We work to protect this wonderful building.
The tour to visit it is one of the activities.

We got a great message from one of our customers.

Thank you so much! Mr JM.

I want to thank you and your organisation for an enjoyable and highly informative guided tour of that Nakagin Capsule Building, last Thursday.

 

My interest in that construction goes back  in time, even before it was constructed. The Metabolist approach to the new world order – now becoming a reality – conditioned my Architectural and Theoretical work from the 1960’s. So to enjoy the chance to enter and appreciate it was most important to me.

 

Arata Isozaki has written:  

  One day I noticed two books … sitting side by side on a bookshelf, and realised it is possible that two types of architecture from two different places (spatiality) and times (temporality) can be equidistant from my position, not to mention similar to my methodological preferences.   

 

So that same idea too had conditioned my Metabolist thinking.

 

I have a developing Blog – https://space-cell.com/2018/01/29/zen/

that explores this, if it is of interest to you. As the world has become techno home  to New Nomads the unique and prophetic Capsule Tower should be known and better appreciated

 

With my best wishes to you in the ongoing protection and promotion of  Nakagin Capsule Tower.

I saw a samurai event in Ota Ward, Tokyo.
Nitta Shrine is a shrine for samurai.
People are proud of it.
And they make a parade of samurai.

These samurai are ordinary citizens.
Their costumes are theirs.

Samurai are not only Japanese.
Foreign citizens are also samurai.

Nakagin Capsule Tower is located in Ginza, Tokyo.
Japanese architect Kisho Kurokawa built it in 1972.
It is a residential and office building.
It has a unique shape and has a lot of square capsules.

However, it is a crisis of the demolition now.
Architecture enthusiasts around the world don’t want that.

We love cherry blossoms

申し訳ありません、このコンテンツはただ今 アメリカ英語ドイツ語 のみです。 For the sake of viewer convenience, the content is shown below in this site default language. You may click one of the links to switch the site language to another available language.

In Japan, this spring is very warm.
Therefore, the cherry blossoms bloomed early.
I saw beautiful cherry blossoms.
Especially, the cherry blossoms in the Rikugien garden are wonderful!

We often see cherry blossoms at night.
Those are fantastic.
