The National Art Center, Tokyo 国立新美術館

7-22-2 Roppongi Minato-ku Tokyo

A futuristic art center hosting a variety of art expressions

The National Art Center, Tokyo (NACT) is one of Japan's largest exhibition spaces. Entering the NACT is free, but the exhibitions galleries may require an admission ticket. The building was designed by the critically acclaimed architect Kisho Kurokawa.


  • The diverse Artist Associations’ Exhibitions, presenting their exhibitions using ten different galleries.
  • The always changing Special Exhibitions, hosted in the two 2000m2 galleries.
  • The NACT's futuristic interior and exterior design

Hidden away behind Roppongi Station, The National Art Center, Tokyo has no permanent display. In that regard it serves as a venue hosting ever-changing art exhibitions. With its 12 galleries the NACT is able to have many heterogeneous exhibitions ongoing at the same time, 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.
