akasaka Sacas (赤坂サカス Akasaka Sakasu?) is an area in Akasaka, Tokyo, Japan, where the TBS Broadcasting Center and the site of the "Akasaka 5-chome TBS Development Project" stand.

Overview[edit]

Construction began in February 2005 and the buildings were completed in January 2008. akasaka Sacas was opened on March 20, 2008, following Akasaka Biz Tower Shops&Dining. It was created for the recreation of the area around the TBS station. Following the creation of TBS broadcasting center in 1994, the akasaka Sacas project was finally completed after 17 years for the 40th anniversary in 1991. "Sacas Opening Fes" was held from March 20 until April 4, 2008.

"Sacas" (sakasu (咲かす?)) means letting the cherry blossoms bloom, and also means lots of hills (Japanese for hill, saka (?), plus s). Also, when "Akasaka Sacas" is written backwards, it becomes "Saca, Saka, Saka" (three hills). This naming was done purposely.
