  • Walk through Sony history. There are several audio listening experiences in the building. Easy to access.  more »
  • It is a Sony building with easy access to the old imperial series high speed rail (subway) Nishi-Ginza station. Now Tokyo subway (Metro) Marunouchi line Ginza station access is convenient access to the Ginza line Ginza station is inconvenient. That is connected to the underground passage. Not useful station on the Ginza Sony building in Ginza line and Marunouchi line.

  • Right down to the 50-year-old act in this month. Was a weekday, foreigners and was crowded with many people, such as children. Stairs leading to corner found anywhere from the live cams from around the world, working with their hands and the underground sound is personally interesting. Nostalgia old fans, were on display, the Sony building ceremony right type radio. A break on a bench shaped the character of the SONY enjoyed the sound of the xylophone made of petal structure of the building. In the next summer Ginza Sony Park, and is reborn to a new right in 22 years. It is very fun or what Bill will think stairs SONY benches and sounds we want leave.

  • 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.
