I love all sorts of rain when I can enjoy it from the inside.
However, spending the entire day in a hotel room is way too boring. So here are two places where one could spend a great deal of the day in Tokyo and avoid soaking wet outside.
1st 🎬 - One of them TeamLab Borderless, an innovative museum of visual experiences, which was already mentioned before (watch the video with the sound on!)
All the other pics and videos are from Kawasaki Warehouse, an arcade designed after the Kowloon city.
Kowloon Walled city was a lawless area inside Hong Kong, demolished at 1993. During WW2 it was occupied by Japan, but as the war finished and Japan surrendered, no country claimed that territory (straight away, at least). So it became its very own. The buildings were so high that the sunlight didn’t reach the bottom levels. Above the ground there were multiple labyrinths of corridors, uniting the towering housing. In a city illuminated with nothing else but fluorescent lights, all the lawless activity flourished. Surprisingly, that was an autonomous community, with no one in particular in control, which flourished and reached up to 30.000 inhabitants.
In Kawasaki Warehouse, the only rusted building in the entire Kawasaki area, there was an attempt to recreate that gloomy and intriguing atmosphere of the city being left to itself with the people living there without any authorities or government.
A memory of the Impossible.
