This iconic piece of architecture appears to also be very practical. It's always bustling with conferences and meetings which look to be very well organised. It's worth a walk through, just to see the architecture and activities.

This is where Tokyo's Reviews largest convention and performing arts center. Located very close to Tokyo Station. Infrastructure and building design might be interesting to look at and studied by fellow architects. Beautiful!

It's in the center of Ginza and a train station nearby. From outside is incredible and a look inside to its architecture is highly recommended. The place is impressive!. But as it was said in previous reviews, almost nothing to see or do (at the moment we went, there was an outlet sale of clothes and shoes... ????? in a... More

Highly recommend this stop for photographers like myself or architecture buffs. The building however doe not offer much else than just something cool to see while walking around the area. A worthy stop and it is not far from other things so why not pop in and check it out for a quick minute!

I couldn't help wondering why they bothered to build it at all. The architecture is interesting, but it could have been located anywhere in the world. I read that there are restaurants there, but I never checked them out.

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

Staying in Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi

Neighborhood 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.
