Architecture: Japan in White

I can see why people adore Japan. I fall in that boat now, too. One of the things that caught my attention was the architecture. Across the five major cities I visited while I was there, the architecture continued to impress me. It was varied within cities and across cities. There were centuries old castles and temples and modern office buildings that made me stop and stare. Here are ten white (or white-ish) buildings that caught my eye.

The Seiko building at Ginza Crossing, Tokyo
hotel in Tokyo
office building, Tokyo (stairs are often on the outside like this)
Ginza Place office building, Tokyo (architects: Klein Dytham Architecture, Taisei Design Planners Architects)
Science Museum, East Gardens, Tokyo
Omotesando Hills shopping mall, Tokyo (architect: Tadao Ando)
Metropolitan Government Building, Tokyo
Toshogu shrine, Nikko
Osaka Castle, Osaka
Italian House, Kobe
