Toranomon Hills

Posted in Places by tokyobling on October 12, 2014

Tokyo recently got a new second tallest building, the massive 247m tall Toranomon Hills (虎ノ門ヒルズ). I am a little late to the game but the other day I finally got a chance to visit the building. Once the building opened most of the media commentary centered on the building character, a white tiger mashup with the famous manga character Doraemon. The new character is called Toranomon (トラのもん) and is a very popular attraction to building visitors. Unlike the other “Hills” of Tokyo (Roppogni Hills, Omotesando Hills etc.) the Toranomon Hills is not that centered on casual visitors or shopping but there are a few restaurants (especially the ones on the top of the building looked interesting and pricey) a few cafes and some quite beautiful pocket parks. If you are in the area I recommend a visit!

As always, click on the images to see them larger!
