I had a great couple of hours with Nahoko. She is very knowledgeable and is most happy to discuss architecture. It is clear she’s really passionate about architecture and that made the tour even better. It’s really rare to step into a Nakagin capsule so this is a really unique opportunity to see something different in Tokyo. If there’s time, let her show you her favorite building in Ginza too! Thanks Nahoko for the tour, I really enjoyed it.
It was really super interesting to go inside the Nakagin capsule hotel! The visited capsule is in really good shape and fun to see… I recommand even if you are not an architecture expert ! It will maybe disappear in a near future so don’t miss it… The guide was also very nice !
She offered me a very precious experience. Not only could I see buildings which have unique design, but also I could learn a tradition of metabolism. You will definitely get excited to enter the Nakagin capsule tower! Please do try!
