    Pipe Organ

    The pipe organ, which has a grand modern design, contains 5,248 pipes and it is undeniably the pride of the hall. Built by the renowned organ builder Orgelbau Kuhn AG in Switzerland, the timbre is as varied as that of an orchestra, filling the hall with a rich and majestic resonance.
    The pipe organ boasts a substantial range from baroque to contemporary music. Out of its 71 stops (timbre), it can produce authentic Japanese instrument sounds, such as the ‘sho’ and ‘shakuhachi’.
