Established in 1926, the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum is Japan's first public art museum. As well as special exhibitions that provide encounters with art masterpieces from both Japan and overseas, this museum features colorful independent exhibitions, public exhibitions held by art organizations throughout the year, and art communication projects. Or just use the restaurants or museum shop. The view of Ueno Park from the tranquil Sato Keitaro Memorial Lounge is also recommended. You should also admire the building itself, designed by Kunio Maekawa, a Japanese maestro of modernist architecture.
