Sony is replacing their good old building in Ginza, Tokyo, with a brand new and shiny one. And just before they start tearing down the current one they're running an exhibition with a really decent selection of Sony products having been launched over the years. Starting with the 1950's ranging right up to today. Really enjoyed it!
...and the last one is a bit meta. Shot with an RX1.
The Sony Building is right next to the Ginza subway station, exit B9. Being teared down starting early spring of 2017.
Brilliant looking lock mechanism, keeping your shoes safe in a box while you do the onsen thing. Close the door, pull out the wooden block and boom, that's your key.
Shibuya above, Harajuku below.
So yes, there are tons of hotels with decent views scattered across all sorts of places and yes, they might make you happy for a while, I guess, and it's all good, but not really in the jaw-dropping whoa-what-happened-to-my-eyeballs kind of way.
And then, there's this:
Ritz Carlton, Hong Kong, 112th floor. It's insane. And they do have that brilliant outdoor jacuzzi on the 118th floor, too.
