I purchased a ticket online to a Tokyo Philharmonic concert at Suntory Hall. Only four seats were available so the seat I bought wasn't in the best position. The audience at this Hall sits in a circle around the orchestra. My seat was in the...More

They have open house. Free concert during Ark Hills Sakura Festival. There are many children. Sakura week is so busy at popular places but kind of less crowd. Ark Hills also have things for children during festival.

Since their opening on October 1986, I can't count the number of times I have visited here. Wonderful interior, perfect seating arrangement and acoustics with great location in Akasaka/Roppongi area. Just went there for Yuja Wang's piano recital and really enjoyed it. Never disappointed.

This was a great afternoon out. I really enjoyed, even though I got the cheapest seats available (3000 jpy). It was actually better to watch from behind the symphony because I could watch the conductor's expressions. His entire face and body were extremely expressive, and...More

Many municipalities have their own performance halls, so with all the competition, the size of this hall may be smaller than one might expect. But this is a good one. Amazing acoustics and sight lines. My son performed here last year on the violin as...More
