A Fabulous Showcase of the Possible Uses for Tokyo’s Unique Venues
This past summer, the Tama area in western Tokyo warmly welcomed 10 meeting planners from throughout Asia. The Tama area is visually stunning and renowned for its abundance of natural greenery. Event visitors had the opportunity to experience this fascinating region for themselves.
In early December 2018, the TCVB welcomed another FAM trip – this time from Europe and North America. The TCVB and Tokyo’s MICE suppliers jointly received these guests at a business-networking event at the Tokyo Sea Life Park. The cafeteria was illuminated with blue light in order to create the nautical atmosphere of a deep-sea club. Fresh Tokyo-grown vegetables were served, making for a delicious feast. Meanwhile, text and images, including the TCVB logo and photos from other events at the venue, were projected over the whirling performance of the unique and futuristic stage show put on by the Kaguzuchi team. The participants were thrilled by this unforgettable event.
These are just two examples of the exciting programs on offer at unique venues around Tokyo. Find out about other programs we provide in the Unique Venues Guide.

This year, Tokyo has received worldwide recognition for the following achievements:
The Best City in the World for the third year running, according to the 2018 survey by the luxury American magazine, Conde Nast Traveler. The magazine summarizes the city as follows: “Tokyo continues to thrill with its contradictions: ultramodern, neon-lit skyscrapers and tranquil temples, unmatchable street style and centuries-old etiquette… It's like a fever dream you don't want to wake up from. This Japanese capital has more Michelin stars than any other place on earth, and is - no surprise - one of the world’s best food destinations…”
Tokyo’s Haneda International Airport earns a 5-Star rating for the fifth consecutive year from SKYTRAX, the international rating organization for air transport facilities and services. This ongoing streak of stellar reviews cements Haneda’s reputation as a global leader in quality and consistency of service, as well as product and service innovation.
Third-place in the annual Global Power City Index’s top 40 major global cities, a ranking compiled by the Mori Memorial Foundation’s Institute for Urban Strategies. Tokyo ranks behind only London and New York for the second year in a row.
