The Tokyo Symphony Orchestra (東京交響楽団 Tōkyō Kōkyō Gakudan?), or TSO, was established in 1946 as the Toho Symphony Orchestra (東宝交響楽団). It assumed its present name in 1951.

Based in Kawasaki, the TSO performs in numerous concert halls and serves as the pit ensemble for some productions at New National Theatre, Tokyo, the city's leading opera house. It offers subscription concert series at its home the Muza Kawasaki Symphony Hall and at Suntory Hall, Tokyo Metropolitan Art Space, and Tokyo Opera City (all in Tokyo).

The orchestra recorded the musical score for the video game Star Fox: Assault. It also performed the score for the 1984 film The Return of Godzilla.
