Big Cat, located on the 4th floor of the Big Step shopping center in Ame-mura, is an excellent place to catch concerts and musicals. The hall can accommodate as many as 800 people and has some of the best facilities in the city. The sound quality is better than other 'live-houses'. Besides concerts, other events include musicals and performances by amateur bands. Private groups, however, may rent the stage for special events, parties and promotions.
