Our Architectural Adventure at Nakagin Capsule Tower Tokyo

Nights to remember at Nakagin Capsule Tower Tokyo Japan. Our first trip to Japan started impressive, different and somehow adventurous. We didn’t choose a hotel for our first nights in Tokyo. Instead, we used a unique and rare Airbnb offer to stay in an architectural icon, the world famous Nakagin Capsule Tower. Designed by the architect Kisho Kurokawa, the capsule tower as a compilation of living 140 living cubes is a remarkable building of the Japanese Metabolism finished in 1972. The building is located right in the center of one of the financial districts of the Japanese capital Tokyo, Shimbashi. But the world keeps on running while this architectural landmark is threatened by the danger of deterioration. Since most of the capsules are abandoned, leaking rain water, rust, and cold no one can estimate for sure how long this remarkable construction in Tokyo, Japan will be open for a visit. Nevertheless, our stay was very interesting and special to us. It is especially for fans of unique architecture a most do on their Japan bucket list. Enjoy our photo story of a gay couple stay in the world famous Nakagin Capsule Tower in Tokyo, Japan and see the towers through a couple of men’s eyes.
