The Tokyo International Forum sits on the edge of Marunouchi and Yurakucho alongside the JR line and is an impressive glass structure with extensive use of laminated glass. It has one major hall that seats 5000 and a number of other halls, restaurants and a central ground level out door space that features various fairs at weekends.Worth a stroll through.

This soaring, ship-like structure of steel and glass was opened in 1997, The adjacent seven multi purpose halls are used for conventions, trade fairs, exhibitions and pop concerts, the largest hall seating just over 5,000. The leafy paved, ground level plaza is a popular space for flea markets. The immense atrium measures about 207 metres long, and about 32 metres... More

I have heard Bruce Springsteen perform here, seated way up at the top and it as if he were singing 3 meters away. I pass through the Forum often. It has a few excellent French cafes/patisseries and a new, very popular Shake Shack.

This building is strangely peaceful even when there are huge conventions and tons of people. In typical Tokyo fashion, no one is yelling or talking in loud voices, so despite its open-air expanse, the ambient noise is at a hush. The architectural lines and use of light and space are worth making a quick stop here--if only to rest your... More

This concert halls complex is located between Yurakucho station and Tokyo station. A lot of famous Japanese and international artists hold their concerts at this complex. The largest hall has capacity of over 5000 seats. Its equipment was very high quality, and I enjoyed good quality of music at the hall.

Not a lot to do here, so don't allow too much time, but if you find yourself walking from Yurakucho to Marunouchi it's definitely worth a walk through the vast main hall. It's the kind of project you did at architecture school knowing that no one would ever build something that wastes so much space with seemingly no real function.... More

We visited this place because of its high rating on TripAdvisor but, just did not get it. I guess it's only worth a visit if you have a conference or some other business venture there.

We visited the building for an international forum. There are three sections with each having its own entrance. We were at the C section and main events were held at the largest auditorium which is very specious and well equipped. At the main entrance of the forum, enormous glass ceiling is the main attraction. Also there are nice food restaurants... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's also a downtown area with shops that were founded over a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza. It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels, world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular with anyone looking for a night out.
