  • Right in the corner of the intersection of yuraku-Cho. Dismantled and rebuilt under construction. The new building is to open this summer.

  • Sony is currently at the Nissan building. I only found it by accident. I assume it will be being rebuilt soon  more »
  • Sony building in the tasteful cottage bridge crossing. 3/2017 falls on the 50th anniversary in 1966, open to closed sales. Post the pictures of the Sony building dismantlement construction was taken in 11/2017. It was building memories filled for me and went to the Sony showroom or shop at the historic Plaza, or dine in the underground maximd-pari. New Sony building completed in the year 2022 to look forward to.

  • So disappointing for my husband who is big into gadgets. We did turn up on the last days before the building closed down and moved to a different area. It was pretty empty when we arrived.
  • Went on the final day of the exhibition. Everything went great, and the layout worked well. It's definitely one of those exhibitions you can never catch again in all likelihood. Nothing truly blew my mind, and I'm not sure how interesting the public opening will be now that the exhibition has closed.
  • Incredible collection of devices Sony made over the years! You get to see almost all products they created in this place. They are showcased according to the year of production. If you love Sony or are a gadget enthusiast, you must visit this place right in the heart of Ginza.
  • Had some fun with melodic steps. Walls had funny drawings, plans of future park. Interesting music instruments in Sony Optus room. Otherwise, expected to see more of Sony products, like Playstation:(
  • the detax shop has changed location (above the Nissan showroom Ginza) but the staff will help you in English.
