Even with such a catchy name, you may be left wondering exactly what the ICC is. Run by Japan’s premier telecommunication company, NTT East Corporation, the ICC is a center designed to showcase the best in new and old technology. Particularly impressive is the anechoic chamber, a room with all the external sound removed. When in the chamber, it is rumored that you can hear the blood pulsing through your veins. Other areas include interactive exhibits, where guests can try their hand at cause and effect and historical timelines, showing the progression of technology through history.

The ICC is a space to experience the excitement at the intersection between art, science and technology. Exhibitions change around once or twice a year. The space also hosts artist talks and workshops, so check the page for details.

Note: depending on the exhibition, reservations may be required to experience the anechoic chamber.
