The Stage Set & Design Centre was established to maintain and manage elements of scenic design such as sets and costumes used in performances at the New National Theatre, Tokyo (NNTT), and to support the development of a repertory system.
The adjacent art workshop handles repairs of sets and props. The archive building showcases permanent and themed exhibitions of materials relating to scenic design such as scale models, costumes and props, and also stages events such as concerts and viewings of video recordings of NNTT performances on a large 100-inch screen.
