Spiral Building


in Harajuku & Aoyama

The asymmetrical, geometric shape of architect Maki Fumihiko's Spiral Building (1985) may not look very sinuous on the outside, but the name will make more sense upon entry. The patchwork, uncentred design is a nod to Tokyo's own incongruous landscape. The spiralling passage inside doubles as an art gallery.

Sakurai Japanese Tea Experience is on the 5th floor.
