Participant: 1

Navigator: Nahoko Wada



I guided the guest from Belgium who is photographer.

He loves Japanese modern architecture.

Then, I guided to Tokyo Bunka Kaika designed by Kunio Maekawa, 1961 because his interest is  “Brutalizm architecture” around 60’s.

We  exchanged the idea of the influence from Le Corbusier to Japanese architects.

Very great and informative tour! You will learn a lot about the architect and the architecture. Nahako is also a very nice and friendly guide. I’d really recommend this to anyone interested in architecture!
