Tokyo International Forum

Tokyo International Forum

The Tokyo International Forum is a unique building in Tokyo that houses conference rooms, concert halls and exhibitions. The building’s cavernous atrium is highlighted by the interesting steel structure at the top, a wall of windows on one side, and a wooden wall on the other.

The building is truly huge. Standing at the bottom, one is impressed at the height and size of the place, as well as the open feeling it provides. Standing on the steel and glass catwalk that ramps its way to the very top of the building, it’s hard not to feel a bit (or a lot) of vertigo. Railings are made of glass, and there is nothing between you and the floor. I’ll confess that I didn’t actually make it to the very top. Hanging over the side of the railing to get the perfect shot (coming in a future post) left me feeling a little wishful for terra firma.

    Class shot of the International forum, love the low angle you went for, most people go for the high angle but I prefer looking up, gives a nice idea about the scale with the people in the foreground.

    Did you nip into Bic camera across the road afterwards for a play with the cameras? I can’t go past it without going in….

    Thanks Will. I believe I did go to Bic. That’s the store with multiple levels of electronics, photo gear, etc. right? Or maybe I’m confusing it with some of the others I went to in Akihabara.
