My name is Jun and I’m the newest staff at Balleggs real estate in Shinagawa!
Since I just got transferred to the shinagawa office, and new to the area, I would like to introduce you the trends and districts of different wards in Tokyo.
As for my first post, I would like to start with MInato-ku.
Minato is one of the 23 special wards in central Tokyo. The name means “port” referring to its seaside location. MInato-ku is famous for its buisiness districts, where they have corporate headquarters,embassies, and exclusive hotels!
-Akasaka Palace (Geihinkan)
Akasaka Palace is a former imperial residence which is now used by the Japanese Government as a State Guest-House (Geihinkan) to accommodates visiting dignitaries while they are staying in Tokyo. The Akasaka Palace building was designed by Katayama Tokuma, completed in 1909 and is now a National Treasure.
-Fuji TV studio
Fuji TV Studios is a distinctive building designed by Kenzo Tange is a major land mark of Tokyo. Fuji TV Studios, offers great views from its second highest floor for free. There are tours available of the tv studios themselves, which may be of interest to those who watch shows made by Fuji TV. There is an up market French restaurant within the giant ball suspended in the structure.
Rainbow Bridge is a suspension bridge over the Tokyo Port, on the northernmost part of Tokyo Bay, connecting the Shibaura Wharf and the new waterfront development area, known as Odaiba. Pedestrians can walk across Rainbow Bridge on either side of the lower deck, where views of Tokyo tower and parts of the inner Tokyo Harbour can be seen on the north side, while views across Tokyo city towards Mt. Fuji (on a very clear day) can be seen on the south side.
Roppongi Hills is an up market and extensive shopping and entertainment complex in the Roppongi District of Tokyo. Roppongi Hills includes the Mori Tower, a 53 story high skyscraper, Mori Art Museum and Tokyo City View observation deck.
Tokyo Tower is an icon of Japan which is primarily a tv antenna tower styled like the Eiffel Tower. Tokyo Tower also features an aquarium, a wax museum and a Trick Art Gallery plus several food outlets!
Zojoji Temple is a famous Buddhist temple, holds six of the fifteen Tokugawa shogun graves.
Shiba Park is a park in Minato Ward, Tokyo, built around the temple of Zojoji. The park is between the Minato Ward offices and the Tokyo tower. Many of the footpaths in the park offer excellent views of the Tokyo tower!
