Located between Tokyo station and Yurakucho station this is a multi purpose exhibition area with theatres and convention areas. It is made of steel and laminated glass and from the exterior it is shaped like a boat. On the ground floor you will find displays and markets of various types at week ends. Worth a visit if in the area.... More

I have just spent four days attending an international conference at this venue. While it is architecturally aesthetically impressive I have had a very frustrating and at times stressful four days trying to navigate around this building. The internal layout is a maze of tunnels and stairs which are badly signed and lack comprehension. The building and rooms are organised... More

This architectural masterpiece is a good place for photos, lunch on a dry day, and an escape from the hustle of Ginza and Tokyo Station areas. Easily walkable from Tokyo Station, but closes to JR Yurakucho Station.

Attended a large international meeting here. Lots of space but plan your travel during the meeting carefully because the layout is somewhat challenging. One thing that is good about this center is access to good restaurants and food, which most large convention centers don't have. Connected directly to the transit line as well.

Este é um dos lugares que você pode conhecer no mesmo dia que for conhecer a estação de Tokyo. Ótimos lugares para comer, Izakayas, são os PUBs japoneses( só pra lembrar, é permitido fumar nestes pubs no Japão). Bem a frente do Forum, há a famosa loja Bic Camera de Yurakucho ( pode pegar Hibya line ou a JR para... More

More than 2000 participants and everything is perfectly organized!!! The first day we needed a meeting room for the advisory board and they settle perfectly with lunch and coffee break.

Twenty years old this building is... It feels new and fresh and stately like good architecture should! Well worth a look. Also there is a cool museum with brush art. In summer have an ice coffee at Cafe Lexel it saved our lives!

The enormous glazed roof of the almond shaped International Forum is very impressive. I merely came to take a look at the design and didnt take part in a convention or function. But it´s certainly worth it for a short visit even if only to enjoy a moment of calmness in busy Tokyo.

We spent more than an hour wondering around Tokyo International Forum and even followed the self-guided tour in the free map provided at the entrance. The outside looks interesting, but the inside was pretty amazing. It is definitely worth an hour of your time to check out this place. It's even nicer when it is raining outside. The building is...

Staying in Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi

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.
