Want a venue that’s both ultra modern and historical? Meeting and events planners need to look no further than the Tokyo National Museum. Established in 1872, the museum (Japan’s largest) comprises six distinct buildings, perfect for any size business meeting, art project, concert, fashion show or new product showcase. Furla (handbags) recently used the Museum to show off their new products. So did Ferrari. Think the museum might be a tad too large for your gathering? There’s a traditional Japanese teahouse located inside the complex that can be booked for events.
Once at the museum, guests outside can take in the breathtaking, seasonal views of Japanese architecture, while inside experiencing ancient Japanese artifacts and Asian art from the famed Silk Road. The five exhibition buildings include the Honkan (Japanese Gallery), Toyokan (Asian Gallery), Hyokeikan, Heiseikan (Japanese archaeology) and Horyu-Ji Homotsukan (Gallery of Treasures).
The maximum capacity at the Museum is 350 people, but for larger conferences the five tearooms and garden area can be combined to accommodate up to 1,000 guests.
