dear Nahoko, thank you for guiding us not only through the nakagin tower itself, but also through the shimbashi/ginza area with great historical insights and backgrounds about the circumstances that finally lead to the creation of the capsule building. hope very much you will find another apartment for the tour so you can continue conveying the fantastic vision of kurokawa-sensei. I was very much astounded that you actually are connected to his works. all the best,
