Yu Suzuki Fan Mail Address

Postby cam19993 » Tue Jun 07, 2016 2:16 pm

I know this is the YSNet Address: 東京都渋谷区恵比寿4-7-15 恵比寿コラージュ301

I have no idea how to write that in the english address format though. It seems jumbled once you have google translate it. Is there a different address for Yu Suzuki fan mail, or is this the one? How do you properly write it down in english?

I dont wan't to send the mail out and end up getting a RTS.

In English that address can be formatted as such:

4-7-15-301 Ebisu
Shibuya-ku, Tokyo 150-0013

I even looked up the zip for you :)

Thanks! So it's not collage 301? I used google translate and that word came up.

Ebisu Collage is the name of the building. But that's already included as the 15 in there is the building number.
If you want to write that you could go

Ebisu Collage #301
4-7-15 Ebisu
Shibuya-ku yada yada yada

Here's what it says just in case you wanna double check the proper formatting stuff on your own.

Sweet Thanks again! Assuming it doesn't matter which one I use.

Thanks for this, Rakim; I'll go check it out, just to see the building (not trying to get in or anything, but that would be a treat!), when I head to Japan this summer.

Also going to Ota to get a glimpse of Sega's building :D

This is the building according to Google Maps. Looks suitably humble. I'm pretty sure it's the right building, the narrow rectangle structure of the building seems to mimic what we've seen in pictures of the YSnet offices, but I could be wrong.

It's just behind that one, not visible directly from Street View. Actually Dojo member abaww went to visit it last year. Here's the thread with some photos he took of the exterior:

Yu Suzuki mentioned during his MAGIC Monaco presentation that his development studio for the project is located in Gotanda (also in Tokyo, a few minutes away by train).

Yea it's hard to find, I tried mapping it for September. Will be cool to stand outside it. I have the address from the business card Yu gave us, but there confidentiality issues surrounding it, and are not allowed to officially post it. (Good ol Shenman from SM knows all about this :lol: )

Will see how it goes in a few months. As weird as it sounds, I want to ask about all sorts of things, like the development locations, how and why thay came about, what takes place where etc. I love logistical stuff like that. I am the magic behind the curtain type of guy. I adore "making of" features, commentaries, alternative scenes. I watch them as much as I do the actual tv show or movie on a DVD.

It would be no help anyway, as they'd already moved offices since the cards were printed. :)

No, is that one not still there, and 2 more were added? Or was it a flat out move?

I understood it as a flat out move to a bigger office. He told us the address on the cards was out of date.

Although he could have just been saying that to prevent people randomly standing outside the building.

Kiyuu already confirmed this is actually Yu's personal office and not the former place of YSNet studios.
