Japan has some weird buildings. Here are my top 4.
1. The “turd”
This is the Asahi Beer headquarters. Affectionally known as the “turd” in the middle of Asakusa (a popular destination for foreign tourists).
2. The Ball
This is the headquarters of Fuji TV, one of the major networks, located on the waterfront.
3. The Hole
This is the Umeda Sky building in Osaka. No that’s not an optical illusion.
4. The Pine Tree
This used to be Sofitel Tokyo, a hotel, until they shut it down. Don’t know what it is now.
