A landlocked ship of soaring glass, full of events and modern art

Designed by Uruguayan architect Rafael Vinoly, Tokyo's largest convention center, Tokyo International Forum, is an airy space of glass and steel. Host to concerts, exhibitions and other events and dotted with modern art pieces, the forum is an inspiring space for cultural exchanges, entertainment and learning.

How to Get There

The forum is easily accessible by train.

The forum is conveniently located between Tokyo Station and Ginza , and is adjacent to Yurakucho Station. You can get to the venue from Tokyo Station using the underground passageways.

Cutting-edge architecture with a Japanese aesthetic

The vast glass lobby resembles a glass ark, serving as the focal point of the venue. Spacious and airy, the steel framework stretches up to 60-meters-high. Throughout the building and the tree-filled courtyard, you can admire pieces of modern art created by Japanese and international artists, with the concept “a boat of diversity.”

A popular place for entertainment and socializing

Tokyo International Forum plays host to hundreds of shows, musical performances, conferences and exhibitions every year, many of which are open to the public. In the basement you will also find the Mitsuo Aida Museum , dedicated to the famous philosopher and calligrapher.
