It's smack in the middle of an office district and the main purpose of this building is for exhibitions. Although the architecture is fairly impressive not much to see here. However, the building takes up a lot of land and has lots of open space...More

Very huge and beautiful. Its free. Has restaurants and facilities. If youre near there you should go to look at the building。 Es lindo para comer o tomar algo. Sino pasar pro ahí igual porque la estructura es imponente y gratis.

An impressive glass building which comes in the shape of a ship. It is supposedly eartquake secure in spite of all the glass.

Wow. Found this by chance. Walked from top to bottom. Across all the gantries Great piece of architecture....from someone who does not usually compliment today’s constructions! Marvellous concept halls but it is the atrium, the wide open spaces that I loved Well worth a visit

A free venue to walk around. Marvel at the architectural details. This serves as conférence and concert venues. Underground is connected to metro and subways, with tons of restaurants and convenience stores around. Excellent rainy day activity.

If you are lucky, you may visit it when a forum is held. Be prepared to meet a lot of people! You will appreciate the modern glass structure of the building in opposition with some historical statues that you can see.

This place is definitely worth a visit if you are strolling around Tokyo Station or Ginza. Just try sitting on a bench to enjoy the stunning architectural design and reflect on the Japanese perseverance and economic miracle. Despite the two lost decades the Japanese society...More

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

Hotel Room in Tokyo near Tokyo International Forum (0 Replies)
My friend and I stayed in a hotel with a nice bathroom design that she found very attractive. This was with an "open" or glass-enclosed shower stall inside the bathroom - NO shower curtains around the bathtub, just a small transparent plastic panel at one side to prevent splashing. She felt this made the bathroom so much more open and cosy, compared to those with a shower curtain enclosing the bathtub. Can anyone recommend a hotel with this kind of bathroom design in the Tokyo area (near...More

Togo Antiques market or Tokyo International forum market (1 Replies)
Hello, The week i will be in Tokyo, I will want to visit an antiques market, and I am torn between the one at the Togo temple or the antiques market at the International forum, which one would you recommend?

You can expect more dealers and better goods at the International Forum. It's open on the first and third Sundays, 9 am-4 pm. Togo shrine market is open on the first and last Sundays. Sorry, I don't know the hours.

Oedo Antique Fair May 17, What kinds of antiques? (2 Replies)
We just happen to be visiting Tokyo on May 17 when the Oedo Antique Fair at happening at the Tokyo International Forum. Apparently this fair is held the third Sunday of each month. What types of antiques does this fair have? Does it have things like old tea pots, dishes, clothes, comic books, etc..? Or bigger things like Samurai armor or dragon statues/carvings? I'm assuming it does not have swords. Also have heard there is a antique store in Ginza but not sure where it is or what types of...More
