Global MICE Cities

Tokyo is the leading Japanese city for conventions; the political, economic and cultural capital has more convention facilities and guest rooms and a more impressive track record of hosting international conferences than any other city in the country. With a wealth of traditional and modern tourist attractions and the most Michelin-starred restaurants of any city in the world among the more than 84,000 eateries throughout the city, Tokyo offers a distinct mix of traditional and modern culture and food while functioning as the nerve center of Japanese business. The impressive collection of the latest technology and information, services that are as quick and detailed as they are dependable, and other elements that underlie successful events make Tokyo all the more appealing as a host city. The Tokyo Convention & Visitors Bureau provides a robust lineup of support services for event organizers—everything from promotion to actually running the events. With all this on offer, Tokyo is sure to make any convention or event a success.
