Another blog about Frank Lloyd Wright? Well, what can I say, the man was and still is an inspiration to many.  My wife and I visited Tokyo in March 2015 and we could not pass up on the opportunity to visit FLW’s Jiyu Gakuen Girls’ School.

It’s just a 5 minute walk from Ikebukuro station, one of the busiest train stations in the world. You walk easily by it’s site in the narrow streets of Toshima, but when you find the Jiyu Gakuen Myonichikan, the House of Tomorrow, you know it is undeniably Frank Lloyd Wright. The five large windows of the main building are a dead give-away, as is the symmetry. Inside you find the original furniture and lighting designs of the school building, that was completed in 1921.
