Focus: ICC



NTT InterCommunication Center [ICC] is an innovative cultural facility in Tokyo Opera City Tower in Nishi-Shinjuku, Tokyo, which was established on April 19, 1997, in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of telephone service in Japan (1990).
From the launch of the basic ICC concept in 1990, it has taken nearly eight years until the opening of the facility. During this period, ICC held a variety of events concerning the arts and science, and continued to publish quarterly journals to distribute information. The fruits of these activities provided the groundwork for ICC to open its doors.
