Excursions

After an exciting and surely worthwhile day of interesting discussions and hard work, we will reward ourselves with a short walking tour around the area of Omotesando, a neighbourhood with buildings by great modern architects.

There are so many great buildings in this area that it’s difficult to cover them all in a single stroll, but we will do our best to take you to some built by the most internationally renowned modern architects in Japan. Some of the buildings we’ll cover during our visit are: The Audi Forum, Tokyu Plaza, Gyre, and Nezo museum. Apart from those listed, the area and its side streets are packed with buildings by other famous architects. Tadao Ando, Zaha Hadid, Fumihiko Maki and Kenzo Tange (all Pritzker Prize winners) to name only a few.

After this we will head to an izakaya, a typical Japanese bar, where we will enjoy delicious Japanese food with vegetarian options too. The estimated cost for the dinner is around ¥900 (approximately 10 USD).

We will also recommend you to other areas to visit in Tokyo and inform you of how to get around during your stay. Our helpful volunteers will be more than glad to point you in the right direction!
