Gotanda lies in the southern part of Tokyo near the new urban centers of Shinagawa and Osaki. Nearby there are many attractions such as the Tokyo Garden Museum and the Hara Museum of Modern Art as well as many hotels of an international standard.
The Tokyo Design Center is situated just opposite Gotanda Railway Station. It is only one hours drive from Narita International Airport, half an hour from Haneda Airport and just fifteen minutes by Yamanote Line from Tokyo Station. This means that it is very easy to get to, either from other parts of Japan or from abroad.
The Trammelcrew Market Center in Dallas has a wide collection of products for the convinience of the professional salesman.
The Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles has numerous products of outstanding design on display for the general public. But without going to these places one can see all the Japanese electrical products at Akihabara and buy what one wants.
A designer looking for the best products for his clients has to visit several shops in Tokyo and sometimes travel as far as Europe to see and compare in order to decide what he wants.Being a designer in that plight myself,the news of the opening of a center located in a central and accessible part of Tokyo, where outstanding products by different manufacturers may be seen and compared, is indeed most welcome. It means that from now on I can take all the time in the world to make selections for my clients.
