2012 Picture of the Week (33/52) – Tokyo Mode Gakuen Cocoon Tower

In Shinjuku, Tokyo, there is a very tall educational building.  It’s the second tallest educational building in the world at 50 floors and 204 metres.  It was completed in 2008.  The Cocoon Tower has a very distinct design, and is in fact home to a couple of design schools (Tokyo Mode Gakuen, which does fashion, and HAL Tokyo, which is a special technology and design school) and a medical school.  In this picture, it’s the tall building on the left.

The Cocoon Tower is easy to recognise on the west side of Shinjuku Station.
