“A little on the expensive side”

5 years ago  /  by Luke
Roppongi Hills, an area rich with overpriced apartments, five star hotels, and expensive shops selling ‘luxury’ goods. Things people don’t really need. Valuable bowls that are merely display pieces, candles costing over ¥10000 each, and sofas with price tags equivalent to the average annual salary in Japan. Outside the shops there is a makeshift courtyard and a giant spider. This bronze statue of a spider was made by French artist, Louise Bourgeois, and is one of the largest sculptures of a spider in the world. Many people are here taking photographs or posing beneath her egg sac. I snap a quick shot, before heading up an escalator that leads into a cinema.
