The Nakagin Capsule Tower part 3

The final post from me on the Nakagin Capsule Tower in Tokyo this time it’s from the surrounding area.

I know there is a lot of pressure for the Nakagin Capsule Tower to be pulled down and a new building to be put up and replaced and I do understand that there are market forces involved but it would be a real shame that such a iconic building would be lost to future generations.

Zase, Dekor and Elijah

A stunning new piece of work from Zase and Dekor at the junction of Ashley road, Sussex pl and Lower Ashley Road. Has had the scaffolding taken down this week revealing what the two guys have been painting for the last week or so.

It’s one busy junction so lots of people will get to see it and I think they will enjoy this new lovely piece that hopefully will be around for some time to come .

The Nakagin Capsule Tower part 1

The Nakagin Capsule Tower in Tokyo was a building that I fell in love with and grabbed my attention from the very first time I ever saw a photo of it and has still has me feeling that way after being lucky enough to stay in there back in May of this year.

I will be posting 3 post to cover the photos I took while there one post from inside of the room I stayed one from the building itself and finally one of around the building.

Architect and designer Kisho Kurokawa was part of the example of Japanese Metabolism, an architectural movement emblematic of Japan’s postwar cultural resurgence. The building needs some serious money spent on it to bring it back to its days of glory back in 1972 as it still exists today but has fallen into disrepair since it was first opened.

Mobile Suit Gundam

The mobile suit Gundam was on my list of things I wanted to see while in Tokyo since seeing Gundam’s way back in the mid 80’s and becoming a bit of a fan. 

So heading over to Odaiba and going to the main entrance of Diver City and walking around the corner and spotting it I was well impressed and glad I made the journey and I then spent a while just looking and watching it come to life so to speak  as they put a little show on with lights and I think steam coming out of it’s chest and a video showing on the main building behind.

I know the next time I’m in Tokyo i would go and see it again maybe picking a different time maybe in the winter and in the dark I think would look really good.
