It's a futuristic-looking convention center on a massive scale. Go for something fun because otherwise it's not worth the trip. Nothing wrong with the place, but nothing to write home about either.

Big Sight is somewhere you have to go, not somewhere you want togo. It is essentially just a huge conference centre, albeit an impressive looking one. Handy rapid transit access. It will be at the center of the 2020 Olympics.

Wide and very organized site, famous to hold the main exhibitions in Tokyo. Food available in several restaurants and transportation as well. Located on Tokyo´s seaside, it´s a very pleasant place.

I was intrigued by the architecture and the number of people at this convention center. My curiosity got the better of me as I decided to find out what was happening. Before i knew it, I got sucked into a stream of people and landed in an Anime Convention. I don't even watch or read Anime, but it was a... More

There are more shops in the building next to in on the other side of the Yurikamome line station. If you are here as an exhibitor and have to come to Big Sight every day,... More

Something impressive to see indeed. Just finished the Tokyo Friendship Run 2014 and wandering inside I was so surprised at the size and space within. A nice cafe inside (Cafe Terrace Royal) that doesn't have a lot of variety, but it was easy to access and appreciated after a quick run. Signage is good, I had no problem locating venues.... More
