Gigerbar Tokyo Exterior (01:58)
The first Giger Bar to be built. It had to be heavily altered and modified from the original design to meet the strict Japanese building codes and safety laws. This was part of a amateur video made for H.R. Giger of the Tokyo Bar, shortly after it had opened. It is a very rare document and the only video Giger remembers to have seen of the bar. Most of the houses an buildings have changed, since the time this video was recorded. In 1995 HRGiger had already asked about that bar, but because surprisingly he himself was not able to find the address it was impossible for any of his staff to locate the place. Even if they happened to be in Tokyo at the time. Most of Tokyo's residents were not aware of the Bar's existence. Giger never visited the bar. Had it been located in Shibuya, Ginza or Harajuku, it would have likely become a landmark for fans traveling to Japan. Here are some facts: -The bar was built 1988. -By the mid 90's the "Giger"sign above the entrance had been replaced with a "Gala City" sign. -In 1996 the bar was closed and a sign announced the construction of new apartment. As of 2011, the location looks still very much like in the 2004 video. For those who want to pinpoint the location with GPS or Google Earth, here are the coordinates: 35 38'30.83"N 139 43'11.67" E Enthusiasts can see the site using Google Street View. The postal address is: Gala City 5-10-15 Shiroganedai MINATO-KU Tokyo Japan 108-0071 The fate of the decor remains unknown to Hansruedi Giger and his staff. For many, the H.R.Giger's bar in Tokyo remains a mystery. But due to Japanese strict building codes, the bar could not meet the artistic expectations of the bar in Gruyeres or Chur. More information at: http://www.hrgiger.com/tokyo.htm or HRGiger's homepage www.hrgiger.com The only presently existing Gigerbars are both located in Switzerland: One which was opened in 1992 in Chur in the Kalchbuehl Center. The most recent one was opened 2003 beside the Giger Museum in Gruyeres. Both bars are very different and unique in their design.
