Hello Japan - Japan Travel Guide


Travel Guide - Bunkamura


Bunkamura is a large-scale arts and culture complex that houses mini-theaters, concert hall, theater, gallery, and art museum. Cafes and restaurants, and various shops are also built into an annex to this complex.
You can visit and enjoy the works of art at "The Museum". The open-style museum holds exhibitions based on its own approach, such as exhibitions with a focus on the transition of modern arts, exhibitions of artists who have had very little exposure in Japan, and exhibitions of masterpieces from world-renowned museums.
Theater Cocoon is a theater for all kinds of stage performances. The theater stages a variety of plays, concerts, and dance performances. It has a very compact structure where the stage and the last row of seats on the first floor are only 24 meters apart and that creates a sense of intimacy between the performers and the audience. The theater has a total seating capacity of 747 persons.
Orchard Hall is the largest "shoe box" style hall in Japan for western classical music concerts, opera and ballet performances as well as popular music concerts. This hall creates a magnificent sound field where the sound is reflected from the high ceiling and vertical walls. The hall has a total seating capacity of 2,150 persons.
