Suntory Hall Tours and Activities
Travelers planning to enjoy a little classical music while in Tokyo should plan to attend a concert at Suntory Hall. This lavish auditorium in the Ark Hills complex in Tokyo’s Akasaka District enjoys the best acoustics of any venue in the city, and a variety of nearby restaurants and bars make it a convenient destination for a night out on the town.
The hall opened in 1986 as the brainchild of Keizo Saji, the then president of Suntory Ltd. It was the first concert hall in Japan to be constructed using a vineyard design with seating surrounding the stage, an arrangement that facilitates the audience and musicians sharing in an immersive musical experience.
Suntory Hall is divided into two separate performances spaces, the 2,000-seat Main Hall, home to one of the world’s largest pipe organs, and the smaller, more intimate Blue Rose (Small Hall). The space hosts around 550 performances each year and is one of the regular venues for the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra and the NHK Symphony Orchestra.
