From sightseeing to hidden gems, find out what makes the city unique with the help of the locals who know it best.

Business Center
“A world-class theater city Tokyo Opera City boasts roughly 60 shops, two museums and six theaters/halls. Its large concert hall hosts a variety of events including operas and music recitals, and contains one of the world's best acoustic systems. The New National Theatre hosts ballet, theatrical performances and other contemporary performing arts events. Art and technology fans should head to the NTT InterCommunication Center (ICC), a free-admission gallery aimed at creating a dialogue between science, technology and art. If, however, you enjoy art in the more traditional sense, opt for the Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery, the largest gallery in the complex. Check the website for up-to-date exhibition information. After you've had your cultural fill, make your way to the 53rd floor where you can enjoy food and refreshments with a view at the Sky Restaurant, located a dizzying 230 meters above ground level.”
