The Tokyo Opera City Cultural Foundation in Shinjuku, Tokyo, will be offering a series of free lunchtime concert performances each month.

These free performances are scheduled to be held in the concert hall of the Tokyo Opera City Tower in Shinjuku until March 2020. Focusing on the organ, the lunchtime performances will feature the skills and talents of classical musicians including Mari Mihara, Makiko Arai and Kanaka Shimizu.

Running for just under an hour, the performances leave plenty of time to explore the rest of the Tokyo Opera City Tower complex, including its art gallery, NTT media-art museum as well as the chance to dine at its restaurants and cafes.

Please note that there is no free performance scheduled for February 2020 and while reservations aren't currently required, it is advisable to check the official website for any changes to the performance schedule .

Getting there

From the South Entrance of Shinjuku Station, take the Keio New Line to Hatsudai Station. Tokyo Opera City Tower is a few minutes walk from the East Exit.

Ah! My escape from busy Shinjuku life when I worked there. It's a pleasant walk from the Metropolitan Building through Shinjuku Chuo Park to Opera City. I headed south on the "Urasando", the back approach to Meiji Shrine, through Sangubashi where there are lots of places to eat. One surprise is the equestrian park at the north end of the shrine.

An equestrian park would indeed be a surprise.

Would be a lovely way to escape the office during a lunch break!

100% agree...I honestly think you can enjoy cities in Japan much more economically than Aus. I've noticed it big time with kids activities...the aquarium and zoo in Melbourne are so expensive, but here in Japan they're actually very reasonably priced!
