This is one huge volume of space! Most of it is void, but so what, it's still impressive, and intriguingly detailed. Behind the scenes, not so much: I went to the men's room near... read more

Very close to Tokyo station in Maranouchi, the Tokyo Intl Forum is worth a visit when in the area. Great architecture.

This is one huge volume of space! Most of it is void, but so what, it's still impressive, and intriguingly detailed. Behind the scenes, not so much: I went to the men's room near the south entrance and had to march quite a way down a long narrow corridor that was segmented rather than curved to match the building.

We were looking for things to see and this was somewhere on an internet list, so we hopped onto the train and walked from the station down the street. As it was a Sunday there was a flea market outside with many stalls set up and all sorts of cloth, clothing, nic naks and other things to buy... or walk... More

If you're happen to be in Tokyo when they have an antique market, do visit. Lots of stalls with many goods will be there. It's a great place to go if you're looking for a second hand kimono and obi. Get off at Yurakucho and the Forum is right in front.

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.

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

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.
