  • Although it will be soon remodeled, the dynamic that you have since you enter is wonderful and creative. A must to visit.

  • 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.
  • Beautiful building, friendly staff (they spoke english very well!)
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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:(

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
