St Mary’s Cathedral_ Tokyo

This glimmering arrangement of metallic curves is, in fact, a Catholic church. Built in 1964 by Kenzo Tange, this extraordinary building is unfortunately situated quite far from any major train station, but is well worth seeing. The building’s grounds are generously open, allowing you to look at the striking design from as many angles as you like. Standing tall next to the main building is the cathedral’s bell tower - a monolith-like smooth pillar, holding 4 bells at it’s peak.
