A superb tour. Mike, our guide to the contemporary architecture in the Omotesando area, is both engaging and knowledgeable.

This was a wonderful tour. I learned so much about Tokyo architecture! My favorite parts of the tour were going inside of the buildings and learning about the construction. Highly recommended.

I'm into modern architecture and thought this was a well planned out, informative and efficient and fun tour. Really well planned out, and I got to see more than I would have on my own and buildings I had already passed with different point of view. Also seems to attract interesting people. I'm SO glad I did this!

The tour was just great!
Mike made a really interesting selection of spots and the walk through them was beautiful. I very much appreciated the solid context and architects' background that he provided for each building, as well as mechanical or material details.

It was a fantastic way to get introduced to Tokyo's contemporary architecture and I definitely recommend it.

The tour finished elegantly in a fancy cafe with a pineapple cake where all my remaining questions on traditional and contemporary japan were answered!

I had a great stroll through Harajuku with Mike, who definitely knows his stuff. He was willing to do the tour even though it was just me, which he totally didn't have to do, but I'm grateful for. He started with the themes of traditional Japanese architecture, and discussed knowledgeably how individual Japanese architects are maintaining or adapting those themes to the needs of today. Mainly, given the neighborhood, in trendy designer shops so you have brand image and ego to deal with too, though he brought along a bunch of pictures to give a more well-rounded view. I learned a lot, saw some buildings I would have otherwise overlooked or missed, and had a great conversation. I'd definitely book another of his tours the next time I'm in Tokyo.
