This abandoned capsule tower might have been an interesting and innovative building once upon a time, but now it's basically just a ruin. Its rundown state though is in itself fascinating, giving a vibe of dystopian future. Worth a visit if you're in the neighbourhood.
Unfortunately, the iconic building is in bad repair. Comprised of (individually-owned) studio pods, it was futuristic in the 1970s. But, a since some of the owners want to tear it down and build a more profitable building on this valuable Ginza land, it has received...More

Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's also a downtown area with shops that were founded over a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza. It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels, world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
The Nakagin Capsule Tower Preservation and Restoration Project offer tours. I can't seem to post links here, but search for "中銀カプセルタワー見学ツアー". Try contacting them if you're interested.
