Tokyo Big Sight (東京ビッグサイト, Tōkyō biggu saito), officially known as Tokyo International Exhibition Center (東京国際展示場, Tōkyō kokusai tenjijō), is a convention and exhibition center in Tokyo, Japan, and the largest one in the country. Opened in April 1996, the center is located in the Ariake Minami district of Tokyo Waterfront City (臨海副都心, Rinkai fukutoshin) on the Tokyo Bay waterfront. Its most iconic feature is the visually distinctive Conference Tower. The name Tokyo Big Sight in Japanese eventually becomes the official name, and it also has become the name of the operator since April 2003.

The center was a planned venue for the 2020 Summer Olympics hosting wrestling, fencing and taekwondo events, but cutting of public funds forced the organization committee to choose an alternative location for these events, instead serving as the main broadcasting center and press center for the Games.

  • Very large place. I went here during Nepcon 2019 in January. Event hall is separated at quite a distance. Prepare yourself for long walk if need to go to other hall. Here also have shop lots and restaurants that sells foods. No need to worry if you don't bring any food if you come here.
  • Marvellous constructive capability of Japan. Extremely vast place with Halls. Restaurants to cater to the meal time but with little options. An spectacular engineering feast. The beautiful cool seaside is an additional attraction.
