Japan is full of special venues which can be used by event planners. Here, we would like to introduce some of the places which can be used for conferences or receptions, from four different categories which Japan excels in: modern architecture, historic venues, cultural facilities and Japanese gardens. Besides the options listed below, there are similar venues throughout Japan – please contact us if you would like options in a specific area.
Tokyo City View reveals a panoramic view 250 meters above the ground.
From this perfect location in the heart of the city, you can take in a glorious view of the bristling skyscrapers in metropolitan Tokyo.
Tokyo City View can host standing receptions and buffets for up to 1,000 guests, and the venue can also cater for corporate promotional events, product launches and displays, and a variety of other uses.
Nagoya, a city that flourished through the ages as a castle town of the Owari Domain; one of the most famous of the Tokugawa Gosanke (three privileged branches of the Tokugawa family). Nohgakudo (Nagoya Noh Theater) is a facility in a traditional Japanese architectural style built in front of the main gate of the Nagoya Castle.
The all-cypress Noh stage has an audience of 630 seats and is equipped with state-of-the-art lighting and sound facilities. It can be used for large-scale international conferences.
Located in the heart of Kyoto, Nijo-jo Castle was once the summer palace of the shogun. This 400 year old UNESCO World Heritage site will be a stunning backdrop to gala dinners and unique events. It is an exciting addition to the portfolio of venues and offerings in Kyoto City. The city has developed a business events plan that takes full advantage of the castle’s historical value and dignity so that more people than ever can appreciate this cultural treasure.
Located in the Nihondaira Plateau, the Nippondaira Hotel has views of Sugura Bay and Mount Fuji, in an area that was ranked as Japan's most beautiful landscape.

Ocean Expo Park/Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium
Holding a gala dinner or reception in front of the gigantic Kuroshio Sea tank at Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium will make any group feel like they are in the middle of the sea. Nurtured by the black current, the sea of Okinawa has developed a rich habitat full of magnificent life which is beyond the human imagination.
This world-class aquarium is proud of its brilliance, mystery and beauty. Join us for an exhilarating experience like diving into the cobalt blue sea.
As Japan’s oldest and most historic museum, the Tokyo National Museum utilizes its culturally significant venues to host various unique events, including receptions and fashion shows. Holding an event at these unique venues provides an opportunity for guests to truly immerse themselves in Japanese culture and enjoy the charms of distinctive facilities.
An innovative museum with a strong concept, this venue opened in 2004 in the historic castle town of Kanazawa. Many unconventional and stimulating collections of art are housed within this unique circular glass-walled building.
The museum's restaurant, Fusion 21, is based on the concept of offering a moving experience to compliment the museum's art collection, and serves modern French cuisine highlighting the area's local vegetables. This airy and spacious restaurant space can be used for dinners of up to 120 people.
