Tokyo Bunka Kaikan Music Workshop was created based on our wish for “as many people as possible to come enjoy the wonder of music without making large efforts!” Tokyo Bunka Kaikan Music Workshop is a program with an objective to foster thriving spirits through the development of both communication and self expression skills, via the raising of interest in music and the arts. As a public cultural institute, we wish to provide a comfortable space where people can come together to enjoy music.
