After the Sony Building was torn down in March 2017, there was a gaping hole at the corner of Sukiyabashi Crossing for quite some time. But not anymore: the new Ginza Sony Park is constructed right where the original Sony Building used to be. The multi-floor complex uses both space above and below the ground, with the lower ground floors all constructed on the old parking lot.
Inside, you'll find an eclectic range of shops and services, from an upscale 'convenience store' that just sells design goods and a roller skating rink to an anko red bean paste shop that sells limoncello kakigori, a dim sum and egg tart vendor produced by a Michelin-starred Chinese chef, and an aquarium. Outside, there's a lush collection of plants, all of which can apparently be purchased as well. The entire park is a precursor to the new Sony Park building, which is set for completion sometime in 2022. It's certainly a new way to spice up an afternoon in glitzy Ginza.
