Meet Wonderful Entertainment at I’M A SHOW in Yurakucho!
- Yurakucho has been known from long ago as an entertainment center in Japan where many theaters and movie theaters are located. “I’M A SHOW (sounds like “Let’s meet” in Japanese, which refers to the title of a
famous old hit song in Japan) TOKYO, YURAKUCHO” was born here in December last year. This theater presents a
wide variety of live entertainment from music performances to theatrical productions and is crowded with many people every day.
Michihiko Yanai, Creative Director of the theater, came up with the name of the theater using a witty pun. He is famous for producing notable advertising campaigns including one for Tower Record. In addition, Kaoru Kasai, who is known for his work of art direction for many famous clients such as Toraya, designed the logo mark of the theater, while Yasumichi Morita, an interior designer who developed the commercial environmental design for “Tokyu Plaza Shibuya,” for example, was in charge of the interior design. This creative team composed of excellent creators of the time produced a relaxing and comfortable space together. After watching a live performance in the glamorous atmosphere of the theater, we recommend you to head down to Ginza and enjoy dinner at a nice, adult-oriented restaurant.
