Yes, the dreaded immigration office. For the privileged few non-Japanese who do not have to spend time here, you are not missing much. Actually, the building has a cafeteria style restaurant on the upper floors with a beautiful view of the bay. I believe it also holds a detention center (uh hmm….jail ) for those who are here illegally. I have a feeling there isn’t the same view as from the restaurant. Please let us know if you have ever spent time there!
I remember the good ol’ days when the immigration was in Otemachi with a branch office in Shibuya. Now it is in the middle of nowhere surrounded by water. Here is a map to the bus stop in Shinagawa Station Map I like to call the bus, the UN mobile.
Oh, here is an aerial shot of the building Bombs away!
