Tokyo Kaikan

Tokyo Kaikan

NEW CLASSICS.
Born in 1922 as a world-famous facility that anyone could use and as a social gathering place for large numbers of people, with the Imperial Palace right before guests’ eyes. The aim for the third incarnation of the main building was to fuse traditional with modern by providing new sensibilities and the latest functionality while inheriting the memories of Tokyo Kaikan nurtured over its almost 100-year history, based on the concept “NEW CLASSICS”. The hospitality of Tokyo Kaikan cultivated through its history until now, the carefully accumulated designs, and the space spread out before your eyes merging into the scenery of the imperial palace create a social meeting place with a once-in-a-lifetime spirit found only there and only at that moment in time.
