About the organ

A organ has been installed on the second floor of the ATM Entrance Hall in the fashion of European church architecture. It was built by two Japanese men who underwent training in Germany and have received the official credentials of meister. If the movable doors of the Entrance Hall are shut, the space undergoes a radical transformation allowing the beautiful sounds of the organ to reverberate.
Free promenade concerts are put on every weekend to give people the chance to enjoy the timbre of the organ, one of the largest ever constructed in Japan.
