In front of Tokyo Station stands a white, old-fashioned building. Right behind it is a tall glass-walled skyscraper. The two contrasting buildings are actually two parts of Japan Post (JP) Tower. First designed in 1931, the former post office building has been a landmark of the area since then. It was so popular that the developers decided to keep many parts of the building when they set out to build the more space-efficient high rise.
Intermediatheque spreads across the second and third floor of JP Tower. The entrance is hidden inside a the KITTE department store, just about the last place you’d expect to find a cabinet of curiosities full of natural history, science, and artistic treasures. The unexpected location of this wunderkammer is intentional, meant to kick off the sense of surprise and discovery you’ll feel once you step inside.
