“Designed by Architects Fumihiko Maki and Makoto Motokura, Hillside Terrace is a mixed residential, retail and commercial complex that was developed between 1967 and 1992. It became an exemplary case study in urban development characterized by its arresting geometric design and white walls. The site includes an ancient burial tomb upon which is a small Shinto shrine. There is also evidence that the site was occupied from as early as
the 7th century, when Tokyo was a small fishing village.
Hillside Terrace has grown together with the town of Daikanyama and with its people for the past 30 years, gradually expanding its construction.” (http://www.hillsideterrace.com/)
