In the electronic capital of the world, Sony Building represents a major landmark and a fine example of Postmodern architecture. Erected in 1966, the building celebrates all things Sony across 8 floors of showrooms and stores offering the latest gadgets and gizmos. Several of the lower floors offer retail areas for non-Sony brands, while the ground floor boasts the first traditional British pub in Japan. Free Wi-Fi is offered across several floors.

  • Convenient to meet at the entrance of the Ginza, most floors are closed in. It is slated to be torn down soon. 1F lobby has sofas in the room and convenient to meet on a rainy day.

  • Very nice showroom of Sony products, some of them you have never see them! Enjoy the atmospereand the view over Ginza buildings. 
  • I really enjoyed my trip to the Sony Building in Ginza. At the time, there was a 007 SPECTRE display being held, which showcased the Jaguar vehicle used within the movie, along with a variety of outfits and accessories worn by the actors. The staff at the Sony Showroom were also friendly, and they stocked a wide variety of Sony products, ranging from phones and tables, to TVs and professional audio and visual products.
  • Great for technology lovers. Many products avalaible, you can also buy products. Nice building appearence.
  • Great showroom: you can try about every Sony product you can think of, in real-like conditions! There are models for cameras, couches for projectors and home cinemas... The only problem is that the choice in the duty free portion is a bit ridiculous...
  • Great place for tech buffs to check out all the latest Sony stuff.
  • Sony's showroom is just that, a product display. There is no futuristic technology showcased here. Interesting if you like disturbingly high resolution televisions or are an audiophile.
