Meiji Seimeikan Interiors and Elevators

Posted in Uncategorized by tokyobling on February 11, 2015

One of the most interesting parts of the the Meiji Seimeikan in Marunouchi (mentioned a few times in posts recently) are the original building details, the elevators, the internal tube mailing stystem, the buttons, levers and mechanics of the structure etc. It adds to the experience. The rooms on the visitor’s level are very luxurious, and you must wonder at the quality of the fittings and furniture, I doubt many modern offices look this good even after a couple of years of use, and this building has been in used through wars and Earthquakes for decades by now. The building is open on weekends and the is no entrance fee so go have a look when you are in the area!

Sprite Vending Machine – Akihabara

Posted in Uncategorized by tokyobling on February 4, 2015

Passing through Akihabara the other day I noticed this vending machine that only sells Sprite, nicely decorated with images from the Aokana TV anime. At first I wondered wether this actually drives sales for either Sprite or Aokana and then I remembered that I had just taken four images of it. So yes, I assume it does at least attract attention!

The Atrium of the Meiji Seimeikan

Posted in Uncategorized by tokyobling on February 3, 2015

When the great renewal and construction boom of Marunouchi started 10-20 years ago it was decided to spare as much as possible of the historic old Meiji Seimeikan. The rear part of the building was incorporated into a glass atrium connecting it to the old street level and the newer buildings around it. It is quite a nice place to visit and the new atrium is often the setting for concerts or smaller events.
