I had a conference there and I thought it was very complicated to find anything in the building but it's nice and clean with some exhibitions all the time. I was lucky and it was a Ghibli exhibition when I was there, what was awesome. For conference the rooms are working well but it's easy to get lost and end... More

Sleek, modern Toki Messe offers convention facilities and is part of a complex that has become a landmark in Niigata since opening in 2003 at the mouth of the Shinano River. Architecturally, it is the horizontal part of a giant "L," with a 34-story tower forming the vertical portion. We spent six days here, attending a conference, which was well... More

Pleasant surroundings by Shinano River, nice restaurants and shops, there's a museum in the complex, and in the second half of April the river bank is adorned with beautiful cherry blossoms.

Toki Messe is a very clean and modern convention centre. I found the facilities very easy to use and the riverside setting to be very pleasant. The convention centre is about a 25-minute walk from Niigata Station, but it's a quick taxi ride. There are also hotels nearby. I'd be happy to have another event there.

The place has several floors, and many rooms. There are also large halls. I attended a conference, and went to public exhibitions held after the event. Its a short 5 min bus ride from the bus station. You can walk for ~15 mins as well. There are few shops selling souvenirs and snacks. There is a river besides and goes... More
