~Roppongi Hills~ aka learn Spanish with Vapour

I'm just too lazy/sleepy to translate this thread I just posted at the Spanish section. I'm going to bed now, oyasumi nasai :bed:

------

Entre los nuevos complejos multifuncionales que se han levantado en Tokio en los ultimos anyos destaca con luz propia Roppongi Hills. Zona de moda por excelencia, en terminos de "skyline" destaca por una torre de oficinas *bestial* no tanto en altura sino en superficie total. Pero destaca tambien por otras cosas:

Datos:

-17 anyos de gestacion (desde que se compraron las primeras propiedades en la zona hasta que se termino el complejo en 2003) El artifice es Minoru Mori, principal promotor individual en el panorama inmobiliario nipon.
-1 torre de oficinas de 238 metros (The Jerde Partnership, Mori Building Architects and Engineers Co., Irie Miyake Architect & Engineering, Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates) Entre sus inquilinos, sedes de "puntocoms" como Livedoor (la del escandalo de estos dias), Rakuten y Yahoo Japan o de bancos de inversion americanos como Lehman Brothers y Goldman Sachs.
-2 torres residenciales de 159 metros y otros edificios menores. Algunos de los antiguos residentes de la zona ocupan ahora pisos en estos edificios.
-Hotel Grand Hyatt de 5* y 80 metros.
-Centro comercial, cafes y restaurantes.
-Jardin japones.
-Plaza y auditorio para actuaciones.
-Centro de conferencias.
-Biblioteca abierta las 24 horas.
-Escuela donde se imparten cursos diversos.
-Sede central de Asahi TV (la que emite Doraemon y Shinchan )
-Museo de arte contemporaneo (en el piso 53 de la torre de oficinas)
-Mirador panoramico (piso 54) Incluye las espectaculares maquetas de Tokio y otras ciudades que alguna vez se han puesto en el foro.
-Multicines Virgin.
-Gimnasio con piscina, balneario, etc
-Salon para celebracion de bodas en el piso 51 de la torre.
-Alguna que otra cosa que me olvido
-Acceso directo a la estacion de Roppongi de la linea Hibiya del metro.

En fin, el complejo es tan espectacular que hasta hay visitas turisticas guiadas (!)
Paso a las fotos. Las diurnas son del 8 de septiembre pasado, las nocturas del 26 de diciembre.

Que cosa mas bestia, Dios











Vistas parciales del jardin







Zonas comerciales

















Buena oportunidad para darle al zoom











Bajando a la Plaza/auditorio





















En esta se ve la torre en construccion del Tokyo Mid-Town (248m), que en 1 anyo sera competencia directa de Roppongi Hills.





Ahora vamos con la calle que atraviesa el complejo, seguramente la mas de moda entre el pijerio tokiota:

Este Doraemon es una "capsula temporal" llena de objetos del siglo XX. Preveen abrirla el 3 de septiembre de 2112



Furgol





Piso 54

No se pueden hacer fotos de las espectaculares maquetas



Se ve que este hombre se olvido de traerse la camara



El observatorio (piso 54) tiene grandes ventanas:







Y un "Champagne bar":



Tambien tienen un Asimo de Honda por alli dando vueltas:



La "piloto":



Vistas desde la torre

Nuevo Museo Nacional





Curioso edificio universitario



Aoyama botchi (cementerio)



Edificio residencial (de los rascas mas "delgados" que hay en la ciudad)



Mirando hacia Shibuya



Hacia Shinjuku



A quien le gustan las gruas?



Mirando hacia el Palacio Imperial. "Skyline" de Roppongi itchome en primer termino.





Esta va dedicada a Don Carretero, como no podria ser de otra forma



Tokyo Mid-Town (recuerdo, en septiembre)





Toma zoom



Por cierto, segun apunta mi senyora todos los colegios publicos de Japon tienen piscina (quiza haya excepciones)

Aoyama



Palacio de Akasaka. Aqui pernoctan los jefes de estado extranjeros que llegan a la ciudad

Hey guys for anyone who is interested here is a English translation of the intro, Enjoy!!!!!!!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Of the new multifunctional complexes that have gone up in Tokyo in recent years is emphasized with its own light, Roppongi Hills. A fashion district of excellence. In terms of “skyline” it’s emphasized by an *Beast like* office tower, not so much in height as much as in total surface area. It’s emphasized as well by other things:

Dates:

-17 years in the making (starting from when they purchased the first plots of land to when the tower was finished) the architect/author is Minoru Mori, Primary Individual promoter in the Japanese Real-Estate panorama.
- One office tower of 238 meters (The Jerde Partnership, Mori Building Architects and Engineers Co., Irie Miyake Architect & Engineering, Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates) are some tenants, Headquarters for some ”Dotcoms” Livedoor (the one from recent scandals), Rakuten and Yahoo Japan or investment banks such as Lehman Brothers and Goldman Sachs.
-Two residential towers of 159 meters and other minor buildings. Other past residents of the area now occupy floors in other buildings.
-Grand Hyatt hotel, 5 stars, 80m
-Commercial center restaurants and cafes.
-Japanese gardens
-Plaza and auditorium for performances.
-Conference Center
-A 24 hour library
-A school where diverse courses are given
-Main headquarters of Asahi TV (the one that emits Doraemon and Shinchan )
-Museum of contemporary art on the 53 floor of the office building
-Observation Deck on the (54 floor) it includes the model city of Tokyo and other cities that have been put on these forums before.
-Virgin Multiplex cinemas
-Gym with pool and Spa, etc.
-A hall for celebrating weddings on the 51st floor of the tower.
-Some other things that I have forgotten
- Direct access to the Roppongi station of the Hibiya metro line.

All in all the complex is so spectacular that there are even guided tours. I will now move onto the fotos. The daytime shots are from last 8th September, the night time ones are from the 26th of December.
