This is a must go for architecture lovers. It looks like a ship inside. I attended a conference and it was extremely comfortable inside.

The forum is a magnificent building with one end shaped like a ship. A whole building made of glass with bridges high up. There was a market day on the Sunday that we visited on an adjacent courtyard which added to the enjoyment of our visit. It is a short walk to the Tokyo Central Station.

The italian architect Rafael V.put an impressive show here. The glass huge "Ship" is large and we walked it up and down and from side to side to respect this kind of work and actually look into the details. Glass bridges cross the air , high, lifting our spirit.

We parked our car in this building, and the architecture is great. Nothing much else in the building except for concert halls and some small restaurants.

The main building is constructed like a ships hull in glass and really is a lovely building architecturally. The other attractions are actually outside the main building with a few shops and market space. Worth a brief visit and is a break from shopping.

Worth going if you like architecture. Bit like a big railway station - but no trains. Lots of concert halls - but all performances in Japanese with no sur titles.

We spent a good while wandering this lovely building admiring and photographing the architecture. Best thing though, we chanced upon a busy Mr Donut market research event to mark the launch of a new chocolate donut and gain feedback from general public. We happily took part in that! Very random but great fun.
