Sony ShowroomFree: All time

Opened in 1966, the Sony Building has become a landmark in the Ginza neighborhood of Tokyo. The building features a variety of shops, showrooms and restaurants. Among these are the Sony Showroom (1st to 4th floor), which is free to enter. It is a geek haven, where visitors can find out about the latest Sony gadgets and will have a chance to have a hands-on experience with each and every one of them. Many of the products are strictly sold in Japan and not elsewhere in the world. But don’t expect to find cheap deals here if you do end up shopping.
