Konica Minolta Theaters

Konica Minolta Planetarium is the only planetarium manufacturer to operate direct management theaters. Having successfully operated 2 planetarium theaters in Tokyo, we utilize our vast combined management expertise to greatly enhance visitor attendance.
Presenting spectacular star shows and highest-quality content projection are the primary function of the planetariums, but are not the their only use.
Since our managed theaters are singularly unique spaces, we can offer our customers a multitude of exciting possibilities, including children’s space events, live music events, corporate public relations activities, birthday celebrations – even marriage proposals under the stars!



Each year, a total of 800,000 people visits the two Konica Minolta Planetarium Theaters,
“MANTEN” and “TENKU”, in Tokyo. This is 10% of the 8 million overall planetarium visitors in Japan.
These impressive numbers are the result of our ongoing mission to improve and maintain facility attractiveness
for the patrons of these two theaters.
Unrivaled management skills of the Konica Minolta Planetarium Theater team is the key
to creating uncommonly special spaces that continually attract visitors.
The fruit of our efforts not only meets our customer’s expectations,
it exceeds them. We are confident that we will exceed your expectations, too!

The short movie, “Imagination In A Bottle”, speaks conceptually to
Konica Minolta Planetarium’s methodology and introduces you to our state-of-the-art product line up.



In designing or renovating your planetarium,
the location of the projector to be installed is always a key consideration.
