Nakagin Capsule Tower(Private tour)

Es wurde nun ausgesetzt.

It has now been suspended.


Among all the modern and contemporary works by world-renowned designers in Tokyo, Kisho Kurokawa’s Nakagin Capsule Tower constructed in 1972 probably is the most iconic architecture of the 20th century. It’s most striking feature of 4 x 2.5m size capsules stacked up high is the prime example of the “Metabolism architecture movement” advocated by a group of young, avant-garde Japanese architects, including Kurokawa during the high economic growth period in Japan.

On this tour, we will visit a couple of beautifully renovated capsules with the original amenities, such as a 45 year old Sony TV and open reel tape deck attached. Since the capsule appeared in the “Heroes Reborn” TV mini-series in 2015, many intrigued fans from all over the world started visiting this building but internal observation without special arrangement is usually not accepted, therefore please don’t miss this chance to discover Nakagin Capsule Tower and experience what the future looked like back in 1972.

This tour is supported by the Nakagin Capsule Tower Preservation & Restoration Project and part of the tour fee will be donated to support the Project.
