Architectural Building Convention Center
The Tokyo International Forum is a multi-purpose exhibition center in Tokyo, Japan.

One of its halls seats 5,000. In addition to seven other halls, it includes exhibition space, a lobby, restaurants, shops, and other facilities.

Designed by architect Rafael Viñoly and completed in 1996, it features swooping curves of steel truss and glass; the outside is shaped like an elongated boat.

Standing between Tokyo Station and Yūrakuchō Station, its address is in Marunouchi, Chiyoda, on the site formerly occupied by Tokyo City Hall.

On the first floor, facing in the direction of Edo Castle, is a bronze sculpture of Ōta Dōkan.

  • Went, I went and used, held or Biochem, what with the exhibition space and the restaurant was being renovated. Tokyo, prices are high. Come here and just looking up and end up tasting too futuristic.

  • It is a walk from Yurakucho. Underground passages with very good access from Tokyo station. I went by the artist's concert. I think HallC in size can be favorite artists with oneness in the 1,500 or so seats. Seat very well, Cup of your favorite sound, sound like very much.

  • Amazing building to walk though. Go up through the elevator and then walk down and cross over through the glass walk ways admire the building's construction. It's extremely quiet on the upper floors - there are a few restaurants and eateries on the top floors and there are heaps of bathrooms. The place is very warm and toasty to escape to in winter. Designed to be like a ship, the construction is worth spending some time admiring.
  • Worth visiting if only to take photos of the vast and impressive atrium. The rest of the architecture, especially on the west side of the building, is a bit lifeless but at least it's trying to do something different. There's not much in the way of restaurants but the basement connects handily to the underground passageways that lead from Ginza/Yurakucho all the way north to Tokyo Station/Otemachi. A lot of food trucks park up in the central plaza during weekday lunchtimes to feed the local office workers.
  • Oedo antique market on Sunday. Really nice place to find old stuff.
  • Impressive architecture by Rafael Viñoly. Go straight up to avoid the crowd and walk your way down through the ramp, which gives you an all around perspective of the structure. IG 📷: thearchitectshoots
  • Nice place with several events all year long. Conference room, concert place, several restaurants, convenience store.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
