    Tokyo Chuou-ku Tsukiji 5-3-2 Asahi Shimbun Tokyo Head Office / New Building 2F
    This chamber music hall in the Tsukiji district of Tokyo’s Chuo City mostly holds concerts and recitals for musicians from Japan and overseas. Despite its relatively small size with just 552 seats, it is world-renown for its beautiful sound acoustics, which, according to a survey by the American Physical Society, rivals New York’s Carnegie Hall. The hall has a shoebox style of construction where guests can enjoy a sensitive musical performance from any seat in the venue.

    都内でも好きなホールです。 駅から直ぐという立地条件も夜は嬉しいですね。 音響効果も優れていると思いますし化粧室も個室がイッパイあるので音楽会の休憩時間は有効に使えます。 2階のバルコニー席の眺めが特にいい!

    Tsukiji Hongwanji is a building of reinforced concrete construction with a round roof and a big stone staircase. It is an ancient Indian style temple and also looks like a palace. It is a temple of Jodo Shinshu Hongan-ji School located in Tsukiji in Chuo City, Tokyo and was originally built in 1617 in Asakusa as a branch temple of Nishi-hongan-ji temple in Kyoto.

    This is a national science museum on Odaiba island. The permanent exhibits cover a broad range of subjects from the simple science questions to those regarding the latest technologies including the earth environment, space exploration, and the wonders of life. The dome shaped theater that plays 3D science films and other three-dimensional planetarium presentations is very popular. The director of this museum is the famous astronaut, Mamoru Mohri.

    Permanent exhibition included many hands-on excercises. ISS space station module was quite illustrative. Interesting building. Though maybe a bit more targeted to students & children.

    Tokyo Koutou-ku Tomioka 1-20-3
    This shrine located in the Tomioka district of Tokyo’s Koto City is affectionately known as the “Hachiman-sama of Fukagawa” and was established in 1624. The shrine attracted religious faith from the commoners as a tutelary shrine under the Tokugawa shogun family, and every year around August 15th the Fukagawa Hachiman Matsuri (Fukagawa Matsuri) procession is held which is said to be one of the three largest festivals of Edo, boasting Japan’s largest ichi-no-miya mikoshi (portable shrine). It is also famous as the birthplace of Edo’s Kanjin-zumo, and there are many stone monuments on the premises such as the Yokozuna Stone, a stone monument to commend successive yokozuna sumo wrestlers.

    Interesting flea market held at the temple on Sunday mornings. As you might expect, lots of Japanese arts and crafts. Prices seemed reasonable. Worth combining with a visit to the nearby Fukugawa...

    Tokyo Chuou-ku Tsukiji 6-20-37
    According to legend, long ago when the Tsukiji area was all ocean, efforts were being made to reclaim the land, but it was extremely difficult. Then, a sacred object shining with light was spotted floating on the ocean, and it was known that it was inhabited by the spirit of Inari Okami, the fox god. This Shinto shrine was built to house that sacred object, and after it was completed the construction work proceeded apace and the land was reclaimed from the sea. Today, it is said the shrine still provides protection from disasters and dangerous waves. The current main shrine building was the last to be constructed in eastern Japan in the pre-war period.

    The fox god Inari, is revered here. This is a very local shrine and small. It is at the main side entrance into the fish market and I would that it was once a family supported shrine as this street...

    Tokyo Minato-ku Daiba 1-6-1 Dex Tokyo Beach Island Mall 3F
    Located inside the DECKS Tokyo Beach in Odaiba, Minato City, Tokyo, this is an annex of the Madame Tussauds wax museum in London. Various celebrities and famous people from around the world such as Michael Jackson, Beyoncé, the UK’s Prince William, former President Barack Obama and Mao Asada are reproduced in life-like form. Part of the appeal is that beyond merely looking at the forms, you can rest your arm on their shoulder and take photographs with them.

    Just a great exhibition. As a foreign tourist, I did not recognise many of the Japanese celebrities. I did, however, noticed a few exhibits to be the same as the one I saw in Hong Kong.

    First of all, there is not much of anything Panasonic about this place if you are is expecting tech prowess and futuristic exhibits. Its seems more like an interactive science center you may have...

    Tokyo Koutou-ku Fukagawa 2-16-3
    A Buddhist temple standing along Metropolitan Road 463 in 2 Chome, Fukagawa, Koto City. The temple's seated figure of King Yama, judge of the afterlife, is 3.5 meters tall and weighs 1.5 tons, making it the largest in Japan. Some of the temple's many other highlights include 16 paintings created in 1784 depicting heaven and hell on display in the main temple, and a stone bearing the footprint of Soga Goro, a historical figure famously depicted in the popular kabuki play known as the Soga Monogatari.

    This is a lovely Budist temple with people worshipping through the day. Its calm even though its on the main road. Worth a quick visit

    Tokyo Koutou-ku Toyosu 6-1-1
    A museum where visitors can have fun while learning about natural gas, a key resource supporting modern life; as well as energy and the global environment. The museum has an abundance of displays and interactive exhibits. The roof of the museum, covered in a natural grass lawn, is an arc approximately 1/20 thousandth that of the curvature of the Earth, and here visitors can get a feel for the roundness and size of the actual planet.

    It is not a fascinating place for not Japanese speakers. Entertaining for local kids, but nothing special. We visited when explored our new district.

Tokyo Areas

The setting of countless iconic movie scenes and the inspiration for songs, poetry, and literature worldwide, Tokyo barely requires an introduction. It’s hard for the kaleidoscopic neon lights, wacky pop culture, and some of the world’s tallest structures not to instill excitement in any first-time visitor to Tokyo, whether you’re in the very center of the hustle and bustle in Shinjuku or Shibuya or looking in from the quieter suburbs.
