Nahoko’s tour of Nakagin Capsule Tower was fantastic. We learned so much about the history of the building and also got to see the New Shimbashi Building and the Shizuoka Press and Broadcasting Center. Nahoko is knowledgeable and interesting and there were many facinsting things I found out about the Capsule Tower, I am a historian of architecture and enjoyed this tour so much! The Tower is endangered by redevelopment plans so to see this landmark while you can.
