Main content starts here.

The National Museum of Modern Art is a Western-style brick building located in a verdant green park that seems far removed from the city. It was built in 1910 as the headquarters for the Imperial Guard. The exterior, entranceway, and stairwell have been designated as Important Cultural Properties. The exhibition facilities have been remodeled, and this art museum is currently open to the public as a place that collects works of industrial art and design from the Meiji period on.
