Time Out says

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.
