Yesterday I visited Hikarie, the new building, department store, self-contained microcity in Shibuya. I don’t really like how this big crystal cube, 183 meters tall, looks like on the east side of the station. It is not a structure that you see from the street and say “Wow!”.
But, from the inside the experience is different. Entering the building from the Fukutoushin line station designed by Takao Ando made me “Wow!”. I also liked the feeling of being in a wide space in the 11th floor and enjoyed the beautiful sunset views.
