Qué vas a hacer

Let's get into the design details of 8-10 of my favorite examples of architecture by Japan's top architects. We'll see (new) buildings by almost every internationally recognized architect in Japan. It's such a rare case to have a high density of examples from the most heralded architects in one area. We'll also look at more examples of buildings to give you a sense of each architect's design.

We'll go on top of rooftops, around corners, and through the small streets of Aoyama. We'll talk about design of the buildings, and their place in the city through the lens of a few themes. I'll show you connections between Japanese culture and urban design. I also make connections between my own worldview, transformed by Japan, and the city.
Other things to note
Wear walking shoes. Use my directions to find the meeting point. The map is not as accurate sometimes.

I have a Master's degree in Urban Design from Georgia Institute of Technology, and I studied Japanese cities and architecture through a framework of Ecological Urbanism. I consider Japanese architecture the best in the world right now. I love the city and nature—two major aspects of Japanese design.

Enjoyed the tour with Mike. He has studied the topic and can answer most of the questions. It was interesting hearing about his perspective as well. Content wise it felt more like 2 hours, since there is walking involved. Even though I have been to Tokyo several times, it was still useful to get context behind some of the really magnificent buildings. Thanks Mike and wishing you all the best!

This tour was incredibly nice!! I am interested in architecture but didn’t have much knowledge about it before I took this tour. However, after this activity and Mike’s explanation, I’ve got much information and more interest in architecture. Thanks Mike for the wonderful tour. I definitely recommend this tour!!

This experience was amazing, very private. Mike knew details of the city and nice spots he showed us. He talked about architects and their work, he was so passionate about the buildings that make me fall in love with Japanese Architecture if I wasn’t already. This is a must do for every architect out there. Thanks Mike!!

Mike was an informative young man who really seemed to know his topic. He took us to many new and exciting buildings and had a real passion for modern architecture. We highly recommend his tour.

For an ex-architect, the tour is a great way to view beautiful architecture around Harajukyu and Omotesando within a few hours. Its story telling aspects could however be improved upon to deliver a better experience to match its premium pricing and detailed feedback has been provided for the operator's consideration.

Mike met with us at the Nike store and it was easy to find his starting location. We enjoyed the tour, and what we loved was getting into the back streets of Tokyo in lovely little neighbourhoods we would never have found by ourselves. He showed us mainly modern architecture and buildings. If it is raining, definitely bring an umbrella.
