Capsule Tower, Tokyo

A famous building of Kisho Kurokawa, that reflects the views Japanese had of the future in the70's.

A famous building of Kisho Kurokawa, that reflects the views Japanese had of the future in the70's. Plans of tearing it down have been running around since 2008 but the building is still there so hurry up! From Shinbashi or Shidome station, take the underpass and get out on exit 5. Walk 150 meters until you reach a street with a highway above it. The building is across the street, a little bit to the right.
