Tokyo: 3-Hour Contemporary Architecture Walking Tour
- Duration: 3 hours
A fantastic afternoon: not only did we get to see and appreciate buildings that we would never have come across otherwise, but Mike’s explanations helped us to a better understanding of the connections between Japanese culture and design. Mike has a great conversational style: informative, informal, but still increasing our understanding.
In spite of the hundreds of tours, Mike must have given over the years, he took a personal interest in us and was genuinely keen to enrich our experience of Tokyo's architecture. The knowledge we acquired gave us a greater appreciation and understanding of the buildings we later saw in our travels to other parts of Japan.
Mike provided an exceptional tour, giving us insights into Japanese architecture in an inspiring way. He is very knowledgeable and receptive to questions. We got to see some of the expected, but also many of the unexpected sights off the beaten track! It is a truly personalized experience that is highly gratifying.
Discovered numbers of the hidden gems in the area. Highly recommend this tour to all visitors. Looking forward for the future Cake tour, which can also be combined with Modern Japanese Architecture (both have been developed under French influence and taken it to the next level) .
The tour showed wonderful examples of modern Japanese architecture I walked neighbourhood's I never heard about and saw gems of contemporary Japanese style. Lots of information regarding the various architect's background and vision. Strongly recommend.
