  • We visited the exposition located on the 5th floor. The staff was adorable and very keen to make demonstrations of the new products. Very recommandable quick stop.
  • An ageing building that does little for Sony's image of being at the forefront of technology. Helpful as meeting spot but now eclipsed by the shiny new Tokyu Plaza Ginza opposite.The Italian restaurant Sabatini on one of the top floors is very good but pricey. The building is actually getting torn down in 2017 and will be replaced by a park and big theatre screen for the Olympics, after which it will be redeveloped, with completion in 2022.
  • i got four stamp and my prize is stiker.nice showroom of sony products. 8 th floor cinema
  • The Sony building usually has an exhibition going on. In addition to being able to get Sony products at the duty free store, they have art in the gallery, prototypes, and a bit of a museum. If you're looking to buy something the staff is really friendly and speaks English.
  • Cool products! You can try everything! VR, Headphones, 4k screens and more.
