  • 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.
  • 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:(
  • 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.
  • the detax shop has changed location (above the Nissan showroom Ginza) but the staff will help you in English.
