The ROHM Theatre Kyoto, originally known as the Kyoto Kaikan is a concert hall and performnce venue located in Kyoto, Japan. The main hall was first opened in 1960 and seated 2,005 patrons. The facility closed in 2012 and was redeveloped over a four year period reopening in January 2016. As well as the main concert hall, the facility also has two additional performance spaces seating 700 and 200 guests.

Kyoto-based ROHM semiconductor saved the landmark post-modernist building from possible demolition by granting ¥5.25 billion towards the cost of refurbishment. In recognition of this contribution, ROHM received naming rights to the building. [1]
