Tokyo Big Site

Tokyo Big Site standing prominently unique.

As luck would have it my stay in Japan perfectly overlapped with a large arts fair in Tokyo called DesignFesta.  This took place in the large convention center called Tokyo Big Site.  Since the Big Site was only a block from the Hotel we were staying at Sean and I couldn’t pass up that opportunity.  The event was amazing but so was the Tokyo Big Site itself.  The design of the building is just so fun and unique, like many of the buildings in Tokyo seemed to be.  There was also a very fun sculpture in front of it, a giant saw.  Seeing as the land that the Big Site is built on is all part of the man-made island built to extend Tokyo I found it entertaining that they would have a giant saw cutting into the earth.  The Big Site was also the train station we used every day to get home so the Big Site and the Big Saw soon became landmarks of home base.
