【2024.1.29 UPDATE】 Renovations Scheduled for Feb 13 (Tue) to Feb 28 (Wed), 2024. Reopening Feb 29 (Thu) 2024

In 2017, TOKYO MYSTERY CIRCUS opened its doors in Shinjuku’s Kabukicho, aiming to share with the district’s visitors the wonders of its immersive storytelling entertainment and elevate Kabukicho into an even more attractive and enjoyable city. In these past 6 years, we’ve provided this latest form of entertainment to over 2,300,000 guests.

Approaching its 7th year, Tokyo Mystery Circus will enter a renovation period and reopen on February 29th (Thur), 2024. To upgrade our space into one that is more accessible and easy to stop by, the 1st and 2nd floors will begin its renovations. The Lightbulb Bookshop – Lampdou (謎専門書店「らんぷ堂」) will be moved to the 1st floor, while HIMITSU COFFEE and the GOODS SHOP, which sells merchandise, will be remodeled.

From February 13 (Tue) to February 28 (Wed), 2024, the 1st and 2nd floors will be closed. In addition, some of our events will be temporarily suspended. Please see below for more details.
