About

Greetings from the President

Tokyo Bunka Kaikan was founded in 1961, building a brilliant history as the Music Hall of Fame of Japan for more than half a century.

On our stage, legendary maestros have played a majestic score with their baton, divas of our century have mesmerized our audience with their lustrous voice, and dancers whose names are etched in the history of dance have given us a wonderful physical performance that's in a class of its own.

Stage art feeds our sensibilities, our soul, and our spirit. In truth, from the ancient times to today, people have created, enjoyed, and passed down art in its many forms.

Japan is facing a serious decline in birth rate and increase in the population of the elderly. Messages that art delivers and the energy that art gives to our spirit will continue to be needed. We need to believe in the power of art, and Tokyo Bunka Kaikan will continue to serve as the Hall of Fame and a place that transmit this message.

President, Hisashi Hieda
