Due to past earthquakes, fires, as well as the bombing during the war, not too many historical buildings have survived in Tokyo.

However there are no shortage of contemporary buildings mostly by Japanese architects but also by some foreign units as well. We have mentioned a few of the big names below. You'll find many of the architecture either in the Omotesando or Ginza district. They are right in the main tourist areas of town, so be on the lookout for some of the buildings featured here.
