In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.

A New Art Museum in the Heart of the City

The Seiji Togo Memorial Sompo Japan Nipponkoa Museum of Art was Japan's first art museum located on the upper floors of a skyscraper. It opened in 1976, and has been much loved ever since. In 2020, it reopens as the Sompo Museum of Art, in a brand-new building on the same site.

The new exhibition area gives visitors the space to really take in each and every artwork. You can get closer than ever before to the star of the collection: Vincent Van Gogh's "Sunflowers."

The new museum, with its softly curved architecture, is a new art landmark in the city of Tokyo.
