On March 11, a Kagami-biraki (Sake ceremony) was performed on the MIPIM 2015 Japan Pavilion in Riviera Hall to beseech the gods to grant harmony and good fortune over MIPIM Japan in the presence of (left to right on the photo) Rokushika Masaharu, Chairman Nihon Sekkei Inc., Ishii Kisaburo, Vice Minister, Ministry of Country Planning, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, Paul Zilk, CEO Reed MIDEM and Hatanaka Makoto, Chairman & Director Tokyo Tatemono.

Toranomon Hills nominated at MIPIM Awards
One of the project showcased on the Japan Pavilion at MIPIM 2015, the Toranomon Hills, is competing in the MIPIM Awards in the Best Urban Regeneration Project category.
Toranomon Hills development is a skyscraper complex project built by Mori Building in the Toranomon district of Minato in Tokyo. Designed by the architectural and engineering design company Nihon Sekkei, the new landmark, built around the Second Belt-line, will re-emphasize Tokyo’s position as a major international force.
The building is close to the Loop Road N°2, a new arterial highway which connects the center area of Tokyo with the waterfront area, and is a few step away from a new subway station.
The 247 m high, 52-storey, multipurpose tower, one of the tallest building in Tokyo (the tallest with its highest point of 255,5 m) will provide innovative retail outlets, cutting-edge offices and conference venues as well as residential apartments with stunning views.
