Focusing primarily on local Shibuya artists, the Shoto Museum of Art was developed to promote regional arts education, providing a first-class space to cultivate Tokyo's up-and-coming artists. The facility's most notable element is its architecture, which features a central atrium that fills with natural light, while using a reinforced, windowless red granite stone exterior to provide a buffer from the quiet residential surroundings.
Given the affordable entry fee and relaxing ambiance, the museum serves as a suitable escape from the noise and excitement that characterizes the rest of Shibuya. The neighboring Shoto Park is similarly secluded, allowing you to get a sense of residential life in the city.
