  • I went in August 2015 on the advice of the Michelin guide. It is a beautiful modern architecture, without flipping or moving. Very quick to see. Do you not move it.

  • I think many visitors at concerts and events, but here come ride in an elevator, please go to the seventh floor. From the 7th floor structure bare building can, of course, hope the Tokyo station. Instead of using elevators and stairs from the 7th floor suite down to 1st floor slope alone. However, is the fear of heights and be careful.

  • International Forum said, is famous as a venue for exhibitions and conferences, but once in a while glass building across the street (EV from the basement floor), please look up to the 7th floor. You can see the futuristic structure. Most go to the edge and JR lines are exposed! However, includes various meetings in this building, so not so!

  • Hall A was large and beautiful, especially with hundreds of light bulbs lighting up the hall giving off effects of spotlights. Access from the subway and railway stations was just great and very convenient. Some of the toilets are clean, sleek, and rather fancy when compared to other public toilets such in most department stores.
  • It's an impressive glass and steel building that offers a good background for portrait photography. The forum is also a good place to take a short rest. There is a covered patio where food trucks sell lunch and seasonal flee markets and concerts are held.
  • Had a great meeting with my business partners there. The location is very central and easy to reach. The rooms also looked fine.
  • A grand convention center. This building gives an option of walking across the floors via a magnificent ramp with gentle slope. Good for fitness. Very clean and sound proof halls.
  • I don't know about the forum itself but it contains the famous "glass boat" building which is one of the most famous architectural landmark of Tokyo which made the cover of many architecture magazines worldwide.
