There's absolutely nothing to see nor do in this building other than admire its unique architecture. Despite holding several exhibitions, the place felt totally deserted around 8pm.

Every first and third Sunday, the outdoor Oedo Antique Market is held adjacent to the Tokyo International Forum. It is a very pleasant space, not far from Tokyo Station. There are some very good buys -- for example, used brocade obis were selling for 500 Yen!

It didn't take long to be in and out of this place. Took a couple of photos of the cool architecture, but thats it.... there's nothing else around here. I wouldn't recommend going out of the way to head over there unless its simply on the way to somewhere else, like Akihabara.

This is quite a spectacular building with its glass structures and design. Most of it has been constructed with laminated glass and it provides excellent lighting in the central area where they often have markets of various types. It is made up of major entertainment halls and rooms and a number of good restaurants and well worth a visit if... More

I'm always amazed by the beauty of this building whenever I visit it. Last week Art Fair Tokyo was held here and it was buzzing with activity, yet I never felt it was crowded. There are nice pockets of greenery outside and since it was spring, they were covered in flowers which made for a very picturesque scene. Always a... More

I wandered across the Tokyo Kokusai Forum one early morning but never got a chance to see inside. But it is definitely impressive and graceful with the Yurakucho side following the contour of the railway line. Plenty of eating places under the railway line.

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.

Here a small 4K Video I made of the Tokyo International Forum : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eWtZ61uHXs8 Located a few steps away from Tokyo central station and just in front of the Yūrakuchō Stations, the Tokyo International Forum is one of Tokyo’s wellknown architectural marvels. Designed by Rafael Viñoly (http://www.rvapc.com/) and completed in 1996, the Tokyo International Forum is in fact two huge... More
