Since their opening on October 1986, I can't count the number of times I have visited here. Wonderful interior, perfect seating arrangement and acoustics with great location in Akasaka/Roppongi area. Just went there for Yuja Wang's piano recital and really enjoyed it. Never disappointed.

Suntory hall is absolutely beautiful and well worth a visit. The sound is amazing but i enjoyed the second hall the most as it was more opulent and intimate.
