Trash The Lens

Journeys and photos

3...2...1... Blastoff!

Here is another example of the wonderfully quirky architecture of Tokyo. This one is the Tokyo Big Sight, an exhibition center located in Ariake, a region adjacent to Odaiba. I took the Yurikamome ride to Tokyo Bay area one evening specifically to see and photograph this building and I wasn't disappointed. This whole area is relatively empty in the evenings and with the wide streets and sparse build-up it feels completely different from the other parts of Tokyo.

Why would anyone build an exhibition center in the shape of a rocket engine is beyond me, but it just looks so cool! (2014-11-19 Ariake, Tokyo, Japan)
