Tokyo Metropolitan Theatre


Art, Music, Performing Arts


The first thing that strikes you about this building is the long escalator, travelling from the ground floor up to the fifth floor. Not to be outdone, the halls also have some unusual features - the Middle Hall’s UFO-like shape is especially peculiar. Full-scale orchestras play in the Large Hall, while the Middle Hall is used for musicals, plays and ballets as well as classical music.
