This is the ultimate shop for big boys' toys … it's a high-tech heaven guaranteed to impress!
The Tokyo Headquarters of the Sony electronics empire covers six storeys of things electronic for people of all ages.
Sony is responsible for so many things that arrived to an amazed public but are now just part of every day life.
The tape recorder, transistor radio and television, colour VCR, walkman, CD, DVD, 8mm camcorder, PlayStation and MiniDisc. It doesn't end there.
A visit to the Sony building has the gadget-lover in rapture and even those who aren't that interested are quite taken with what they see.
Tokyo's Sony Building is the largest and oldest in the world, and is one of two in Japan. Displays change frequently as new releases are churned out.
There are hands-on displays, prototypes which haven't been released into the marketplace, and there are two Hi-Vision theatres where you can sit back and enjoy high quality films.
You can have a look at the electronic fantasy world between 11am and 7pm every day, except public holidays.
Tokyo, the capital of Japan.
