Hara Museum of Contemporary Art 原美術館

4-7-25 Kita Shinagawa, Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo

World-renowned modern art in an equally impressive estate

One of Japan’s first museums dedicated to the modern art of the 1950s to the present, the nearly 1,000 works in the Hara Museum of Contemporary Art showcase a variety of prolific artists from around the world. The permanent collection housed in this renovated Bauhaus-style complex, a former residence of business tycoon Kunizo Hara, includes internationally recognized names like Andy Warhol, Yayoi Kusama, Jackson Pollock, an incredible installation by Yoshitomo Nara, and many more.

In addition to the major works in the art collection and rotating exhibitions, the museum also hosts a lively schedule of performance art, music gigs, and lectures that all promote young, up-and-coming talent. When you’ve had your fill of contemplating the art, stop by the museum’s Café d'Art. Overlooking the peaceful garden courtyard, the cafe serves a seasonal menu complete with themed cakes made to look like a piece of art from the current exhibition.
