Few places in the world have such a wealth of cutting-edge architecture as Tokyo. Tokyo is doubtless one of the most incredible architecture cities on earth.
De Beers Ginza Building located along Marronnier Street in Ginza, the flagship store of the diamonds company, is one of the most interesting constructions from Tokyo. Ginza is one of the most famous commercial districts in Tokyo. With a cutting-edge architectural design, the sleek tower made of stainless steel cannot pass unnoticed. Its twisted frame gives it an almost Seussian appearance. The building was designed by the well-known Japanese architect Jun Mitsui.
In an area filled with remarkable architecture, the De Beers building manages to stop people in the street with its unreal design. The space between the tower and the surrounding buildings is quite small and the building can be admired only from close distance.
Welcome to Sapporo – a city home to picturesque summer days, Siberian-style winters and a treasure trove of hidden gems. There is arguably no better place to get a complete 360-degree view over this wonderful city than from the top of the Sapporo TV Tower.
It's not a particularly tall tower by any means, especially compared to its neighbour, the Tokyo Tower. However, it does have one thing that the others don't... It's located in Sapporo.
Since 1956 Sapporo TV Tower has been the most prominent landmark of Sapporo. The tower is visible from most areas of Sapporo. The tower was designed by the same architect that design the famous Tokyo Tower, with the intention of becoming a similar landmark. This landmark is a great indicator on where you are in Sapporo. From the observation deck, you can see all of Odori Park. One of the unique features is the digital clock that is on all 4 sides. It was donated by an electronic company who thought it would draw attention to the tower.
