If you stay in Tokyo, and you like modern architecture, you must visit the Tokyo Midtown neighborhood. On March 30, 2007, Tokyo Midtown was born in Roppongi. The Midtown complex consists of three zones and an office tower with hotel. The three zones include: the “Galleria”; the “Plaza”; and the “Garden”.

The architecture for these complexes was designed by world-famous architects. This was a dream collaboration of architecture at its finest, never before in the history of architecture had so many famous architects such as SOM (Skidmore Owings and Merrill), Tadao Ando, Kengo Kuma, and Sakakura Associates having consulted together on one building project.

Tokyo Midtown focuses on green spaces and incorporating wood into the architecture. The architecture at Tokyo Midtown is worth a visit alone. The use of natural light and wood makes for a very pleasant experience inside the building, while one can browse lots of art showcased both inside and in the parks.

The Midtown Tower is the symbol for Tokyo Midtown; it has 5 floors underground and 54 floors above ground. Its height is 248 meters, which makes it taller than the First Building of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Buildings. The main tower has important companies as its tenants, such as Yahoo, Fuji Xerox, a clinic by Johns Hopkins Hospital and the Ritz Carlton Hotel. The shopping and dining areas are home to numerous world-famous brands and chefs. The complex is also home to Design Sight 21_21, which is a design gallery and workshop conceived by fashion designer Issay Miyake and world-famous architect Tadao Ando.
