ROPPONGI HILLS, Tokyo

A few hours before Typhoon Vongfong hit Tokyo, we were up onto the observation deck on the 52nd floor of the Roppongi Hills Mori Tower. Completed in 2003, Roppongi Hills is a successful development project comprised of offices, apartments, malls, restaurants, cafes, cinemas, hotels, museums, and parks, while the 54 storey Mori Tower is the centerpiece of complex. Centrally located at the heart of the city, the Tower allowed us to have a 360-degree overview of Tokyo. One floor higher up, on the 53rd floor lies the Mori Art Museum, a uniquely located contemporary art museum that serves as the cultural beacon for the entire Roppongi Hills. At the museum, we saw an exhibition of a Taiwanese artist. The exhibition is called Lee Mingwei and His Relations. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
