Despite the fact that Japan faces minor earthquakes nearly everyday, they have built some of the most impressive architectural wonders in the capital city of Tokyo. On your visit to Japan, you will be amazed to see how peacefully a rich culture and modernization can co-exist. Tokyo is the heart of japan and not even a single street in Tokyo can harm that feeling. While on a guided Japan tour you will see just how magnificent and strong these buildings are as they stand tall even after constant earthquakes.
The following are some important architecture that you must visit on your next trip-
- The Tokyo Sky tree
The Tokyo Sky tree is the highest structure in japan and second to just Burj khalifa in Dubai. This structure stands at 2080 ft of height and provides for some breathtaking views from the top. Due to the threat from constant earthquakes the design for the tower was inspired by Japanese pogodas which are earthquake resistant. The idea behind this design is erecting a column in the middle and hanging the rest of the building with its support.
- St. Mary’s Cathedral
Despite not being a Christian majority nation, Japan has built one of the most beautiful cathedrals that will even beat some of the famous European cathedrals. The design of this cathedral from outside is simply breathtaking and completely different from anything you might have seen. A visit to this cathedral should be a priority next time you visit Japan.
- Yoyogi National Gymnasium
Yoyogi national gymnasium was made to host swimming and diving events during the summer Olympics in 1964. It was built in just four years i.e. from 1961 to 1964. The main highlight of this gymnasium is the suspended roof that it has. The roof has a great design that adds to the overall look of the architecture. A trip to Japan will be incomplete without a visit at the famous gymnasium.
