Itabashi Art Museum 板橋区立美術館

5-34-27 Akatsuka Itabashi-ku Tokyo

One of Tokyo’s earliest modern art museums

One of the smaller and out-of-the-way art museums in Tokyo, Itabashi Art Museum was founded in the 70s primarily dedicated to avant-garde Japanese art. Its modest collection also includes pieces by the Kano school of painting, which had gained favor among the nobility and samurai alike by the 16th century, and whose work graces the sliding screens and walls of some of Japan’s most important landmarks.

The focus of the museum’s exhibitions varies from Edo culture (Edo being the premodern name for Tokyo) and Ikebukuro Montparnasse (a name given to the atelier district in the 1920s and 1940s), to picture book drawings.
