Tokyo Designers Week 2013 – Tokyo Midtown Design Touch 2013 「東京ミッドタウンデザインタッチ」

It’s that time of the year again, when Tokyo is all about design and I just LOVE it!

Tokyo Midtown Design Touch 2013” has opened in Tokyo Midtown until November 4th and it’s worth a visit.

One of my favorites this year is the “MidPark Dungeon” designed by architect Ryuji Fujimura (Japanese only). Get inside the dungeon and find four “experience corners” to interact with.

Workshops for adults and children and a Stamp Rally are also being held. This is an opportunity for people to have hands-on experiences with design and art at the outdoor creative workshops.
