“ So special and meaningful experience ”

It was my pleasure to make this visit to the special capsule building which may no longer exist in the near future. The unit was purposely renovated to restore the original character in the 1970s and brought my memories back. The guide is professional and have a wide knowledge in architecture, we had exchanged the build topics between Japan and my place.

“ Insightful ”

Yuka was very insightful in sharing its history -besides the ones of its architectural values and significance. Was an easy going kind of tour and much have been learnt! To add, Yuka was so patiently accommodating to my issues with timing on the day of my tour and was amazingly generous to have let me geek out by being in the capsule a tiny bit longer.
