Great Architectural details!

Beautiful modern building, testament to the craft of the Japanese architect. Also a great venue for exhibitions!

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...

The place has incredible architecture Also loved a little coffee shop downstairs where we'd have French toast and delicious coffee, at a reasonable price, for breakfast every morning.

The architecture is spectacular, will leave you breathless. Is located in Marunochi, advice to take a ride in the basement (character street), then go to the Imperial Palace. It 'a nice area, especially in the night.

Forum is next to Tokyo's Central Rail station. The Forum is a great place to visit a concert or exhibition. The Architecture of this building is specular!

The hall itself was designed to be acoustically perfect, so if you're seeing Santana or some great music, then it's really going to be a good show.

I was walking around the exterior of the Tokyo station and came across this place. There were no exhibitions on but the building itself is quite stunning. Just do a quick walkaround and it's not a very large area. I tried to get to the catwalks but the areas were roped off.

One of the most incredible-looking buildings I have ever seen. We went in at night and were able to explore it in its near emptiness. The catwalks are wild, and the entire building is worth a visit if you are in the area. I can only imagine the different vibe when it is packed in the daytime, but at night,... More
