Mind-bending Mirrored Entranceway in Japan


Officially opened this past April, Tokyu Plaza Omotesando Harajuku is a shopping complex that has one of the most mind-bending entrances we've ever seen! Ride the escalator up (or down) and you'll be enveloped into a kaleidoscope of mirrors that's sure to throw you off balance. The mirrors don't just reflect all the visitors, according to Japan Hot Now!, they also reflect "the time and the season, for an ever-changing view." Designed by award-winning architect Hiroshi Nakamura, the shopping complex's multifaceted entranceway looks like something out of a science fiction movie or at least out of the future. In fact, is it just us, or is it hard to tell which way is up?
