The latest models of audio visual and computer products are yours to test in this tall, slim, and eye-catching building. The High-Vision Theater shows free movies every day. Experience Sonys outstanding audio and visual entertainment at the Communication Zone Opus on the 8th floor. Tech and game fans, this is an invitation to lose yourselves in the world of Sony products. Children will get a kick out of the musical staircase between the first and basement floors.
I went there in one of my first visits to Tokyo and I still cant figure out why its a shightseeing spot. Its a 6 or so story building that has some electronics that we have all seen before. Avoid this unless you really have nothing else to do.
The place is nothing what the other reviews said. I was just there yesterday (4/20/09) and there is no playstation room. To sum it all up, you can see their TVs, cameras, phones, headphones, and computers. Granted you can play with the focus on a camera (woo hoo, and I'm being sarcastic) but that's about it. They have shopping there, like 5 floors of clothes and one tiny section for Sony stuff. Not worth the time or effort to get there. Granted, it's free, but we still had to pay for the train to get there. Not worth it. Skip this attraction if you can...you'll be happy.
I guess my expectations were too high, but the Sony building was pretty disapointing. It's free and it's shiny and full of the latest Sony gear, but that's about it. Think of it as a Best Buy with only Sony stuff. The most disapointing thing would have to be the Playsation area. Again, it was basically Best Buy but with 6 PS2s instead of one.
If �64,000,000 plasma TVs "do it for you" or you have an extra hour in your schedual and you can't find something else to do, then by all means visit the Sony Building. Otherwise, don't bother. Bonus points for the engrish sign outfront warning us not to climb on the artwork.
I should point out that when we went (Spring '04) it was free. Apparently they're charging money now? If this is true, avoid it like the plauge.
i LOVED IT SO MUCH its a musc see essential
really you must see it, its a must see for anyone who likes sony.
It's so amazing you have to go see it i really cant explain how good it is, i loved it and im going again very soon.
Sony building is Ok place to visit if you are already in the Urakucho area. It is Sony products show room. Unless you have interest in particular products, you might find is a little boring. However, it is free to go in so, if you want to kill time, or meet up,it is a good place.
It was free so I can't complain. If you are a techie then it would be something to do early in the day. I would leave the afternoon open for something more exciting. It is one of those "been, there, done that, and moved on" experiences. I would not return for a second visit unless I lived in Tokyo and was interested in purchasing one of Sony's products and wanted to try it before I bought.
everything looked great and it was nice and all. plan to get there before a show. free movie in a great amazing quality. but if u r a gadjet fan, u already have most of what they have to offer, like we had. but it was nice to get there. over in 30 mins without the show.
