The museum is designed after the booths during festival in the 1960 era and they sell takoyaki from a popular takoyaki store in Kansai. There are also stores that sell Takoyaki sweets and character items, and you can feel the festival atmosphere.

After that, I went to dining hall for government staff. The place is on the 32nd floor and you can enter there and enjoy lunch at reasonable prices.
(Of course language is Japanese only, and their office is around, please keep calm if you went there.)

Noppon Brothers

tokyo1

I went to Tokyo Tower for the first time the other day.
And I saw the tower’s character Noppon there.

tokyo2

Noppon is one of twin brothers. That day, younger one was there wearing red overalls.
This character is in the motif of Tokyo Tower, but it doesn’t really look like one.

It is very popular with children and I saw them have their pictures taken with it.

Switch Room – Shibuya Hikarie

switchroom_3f_1

Excuse me if you’re checking here while having your lunch. Switching Rooms are restrooms of Shibuya Hikarie.
These are not only for physiological phenomenon. Places for switching feelings.

switchroom_3f_2

3rd floor’s is for men and women. Cool black outwards, and there’s air shower booth to blow bad smell or pollen (there’s a lot of hay fever people in Tokyo).

4th one is women only. colourful, good aroma scents, and each booth has different artistic themes.

switchroom_5f_1

5th one is also women only, and beyond our imagination – if you have Tokyu (Hikarie’s management company) group’s credit card (you can make it easily if you have work in Japan), you can use VIP room.
I’m sorry I don’t have the card, I peeped there’s gorgeous sofa, foot massage chair, mobile battery charger, and oxygen bar.

Even if there’s no card, we can sit on rattan sofa for a while if anyone don’t need that next. The vending machine near the sofa is selling not only drinks but high quality mouth wash and cosmetics…
