A futuristic gallery space hosting some of Japan's most prized art

The National Art Center, Tokyo is one of Japan's largest exhibition spaces. The main exhibition space is free, but the center also hosts a number of special exhibits that you'll have to buy a ticket for. The building's was designed by the critically acclaimed architect Kisho Kurokawa.


  • The free exhibits open to the public on the second and third floors
  • One-off ticketed exhibits that host some of the world's finest art
  • The museum's futuristic interior and exterior design

Hidden away behind Roppongi Station, The National Art Center, Tokyo has no permanent display. In that regard it is an empty museum used to host an ever-changing collection of temporary exhibits. At any one time, the museum is home to around 10 different exhibitions, meaning you are bound to find something that piques your interest. For true art lovers, head up to Roppongi Hills afterwards to complete the exhibition experience with a trip to the Mori Art Museum.
