Takaosan is a 599 meter high mountain. And it is located in Hachioji, Tokyo. It is a mountain that is easy to visit from the city centre. Many travellers like to hike in this mountain.
In this mountain there is an old temple. It is called Yakuo-in and was created in the 8th century. The symbol of this old temple is a Tengu. It is a kind of Japanese youkai or genie. The Japanese consider the mountains to be mystical. That is why we think there is a Tengu here.
Tokiwa-so:The homes of legendary cartoonists
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.
Every year, from the end of November, Tokyo is beautifully decorated with electric decorations. In many downtown areas, you can see them. Especially, Marunouchi is very beautiful. It is located in the immediate vicinity of Tokyo Station and is easy to access. If you are in Tokyo by February 16, 2020, please visit there. It starts at 17:00 in December and 17:30 in January and February.
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
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.

The Tsukiji market
The Tsukiji market is the largest market in Japan.
There are 2markets in Tsukiji ,Tsukiji Inner Market and Tsukiji Outer Market.
Tsukiji Inner Market is for professional buyers.
On the other hand, you enjoy shopping and can try Japanese food at Tsukiji Outer Market.
The inner market will move to Toyosu on October 11.
There are a lot of tourists, so professionals are in trouble.
Now, tourists can enter here from 11:00 a.m.
But the outside market welcomes tourists.
It is here after October.
