Rain or shine, the TMC in Yurakucho will be open from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. In addition to using the facility as a workspace, we encourage the media to use it for filming, too. You can choose from booths and displays with traditional Japanese culture, art, or food as a backdrop to your broadcasts.

Recommendation 2: Hand stamp art

Hand stamp art is a project that creates one large piece of artwork by using hand- and foot-print cut-outs of persons fighting illnesses or persons with disabilities and the people who support them. There are two locations in the TMC where you can view this amazing artwork.

Recommendation 5: Tokyo Tap Water

Yes, tap water! There are still many nations where potable water is unavailable. When it comes to the Tokyo's Bureau of Waterworks' aims for delicious water, they focus on smell, taste, and appearance, establishing standards that are higher than the national standards and carrying out strict maintenance. Thanks to their tireless efforts, we are supplied with safe and high-quality tap water.
