Nestled in the this old neighbourhood with lots of low rise buildings, stands this brand new building that is supposed to be the “future” of Tokyo in preparation for the 2020 Olympics.
Welcome to Toranomon Hills.
Checking out this brand new spot in Tokyo.
Cafes with outdoor seatings, would be perfect when the weather cools down.
With the mascot for Toranomon.
Built by the same team that designed Roppongi Hills, this building is mainly offices and restaurants with no shopping yet.
Toranomon and Doraemon.
Toranomon – white with ears.
Doraemon – blue with no ears
Since already here, time to pick up a drink at my coffee place. They have a branch in Toranomon too.
Freshly brewed coffee made on the spot.
People watching with some ice cold bailey’s coffee in this hot weather.
Only in Japan that you can leave your bag at the table to go place your order. Very common sight in Japan. *Abunai ne*
Round chairs that can be swirled in and out.
Random art that is strategically placed around various parts of the buildings.
Lots of space for you to sit down and enjoy your drink or do your work.
Good to check it out if you are in the vicinity or if you want to visit any restaurants and cafes there or get away from the crowd in Tokyo. Else you can wait till there is more stuff added in to make your trip more worth it. (Though it is just a short train ride away from Yurakucho)
