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.

Our Salzburg Gay Couple City Trip to The Sound of Music, Mozart and Conchita Wurst – Wait, Conchita who? Well, let us start with the beginning. In the wonderful warm month of June, we traveled to the world-famous Austrian city of Salzburg in the northeastern part of the Alpine country. The city, known for its fortress named Fortress Hohensalzburg, came to fame internationally by being the movie location for the American musical drama “The Sound of Music” with Julie Andrews. But of course, the success story of the music city of Salzburg, Austria started already centuries ago having the climax of being Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s birth and working place.

Our trip to Germany’s capital city for CSD Berlin Gay Pride. It was about time to attend Berlin pride for the first time together. The German capital is considered to be one of the most diverse, queer and alternative cities not only in Europe but worldwide. One reason for sure, why Germany is among the gay-friendliest countries worldwide. It is always a great experience to travel to Berlin in the north-eastern part of Germany, especially but not only for the huge gay pride celebration that is attracting over 500.000 LGBT (travelers) from all over the world!
