The establishment of Korea Center Tokyo is meaningful given that it is the first center to be newly built in foreign countries, which is contrary to other Korea centers whose buildings were purchased for remodeling. Designed by Samoo Architects and Engineers and constructed by Samsung C&T Corporation, the center in Tokyo has 8 stories above ground and one below. As a modern building, it has 370 seat- multipurpose performance stage, 'Hanmadang Hall', which is necessary for promotion of culture, and gallery 'Mi' as well as library.
Above all, Korea Center Tokyo embodies the harmony of the beauty of Seung Moo, Buddhist Dance, and that of Korean traditional architect, using contemporary techniques. On 4th floor are sarangbang of Hanok (Korean traditional house), Daechung Maroo, and traditional garden, all of which were modeled after Yeongyeongdang of Changdeokgung Palace Complex, allowing citizens of Tokyo to enjoy the beauty of Korea at the heart of Japan.
