Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Part of the same huge complex as the NNTT, Tokyo Opera City presents all sorts of classical music events, but not - despite its name - much opera. The lobby’s fusion of architectural styles is a sign of what’s to come in the Main Hall; the base of the hall is in the prevalent shoebox shape but rises into a soaring pyramid topped by a glass skylight. Built for the most advanced sound technology, the auditorium has a bright European oak interior, that's known for its excellent acoustic qualities. Come enjoy the majestic sounds of the 3,826-pipe organ during the venue’s free lunchtime concert. There’s no reservation necessary: just drop in before the show starts, grab a seat either on the ground or second floor and let your cares drift away with the music. Check the website for the programme.



Address: 3-20-2 Nishi-Shinjuku, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo

Transport: Hatsudai Station (Keio New line), east exit.
Opening hours: Admission to free lunchtime concert only for school children and older
