Nakagin Capsule Tower Tours

Nakagin Capsule Tower Tours Haunting Culture Community HIstory Scenic Architecture

Nakagin Capsule Tower is undoubtedly one of the strangest architectural pieces in Tokyo. Straight out of a dystopian movie, the building is emblematic of the Metabolist movement and was thought to satisfy the needs of the fast life of future salarymen. Nobody lives in Nakagin Capsule Tower anymore as it failed to be a pleasant place to live and the building is due to be demolished in the near future.

Fortunately, you can see and tour the interior of the tower and get a taste of its retro-futuristic aesthetic. Each tour lasts 50 minutes and reservations are required in advance.
