Ever wonder what Google Japan looks like? It happens to be located in one of the most expensive office buildings in Tokyo in the center of the Roppongi Hills complex of shops and restaurants – a great location. Although this is not exactly a restaurant post, I thought I’d share this with you.
After checking in at the front desk of the Mori Tower, we went through a security check point, then got into Google and got our name tags printed out. We were lucky enough to have lunch with our friend who works there. Like the US headquarters, Google Japan has a buffet-style cafeteria with a large variety of choices such as salads, fish, meat, pastas, ramen, rice, soups, fruits, desserts, etc all for free! They also have a wide selection of drinks available in vending machines (for free). If Google employees have this available almost 24/7, I can see why they wouldn’t want to leave their office!
I also got to check out a few other parts of their office and I was impressed/jealous. I would love to work there. The best part was their lounge which has a billiards table, foosball, ping pong and more. Not to mention the most awesome 360 view of Tokyo. They’ve really created a fantastic place to work with such a fun design and amazing perks. Wouldn’t it be great if every company had this? Amazing.
