The Shoto Museum of Art 渋谷区立松濤美術館

2-14-14 Shoto, Shibuya City, Tokyo

A soothing escape from the hustle and bustle of Shibuya

Located in a quiet residential area 15 minutes on foot from Shibuya Station, the Shoto Museum of Art holds special exhibitions five times a year. These feature paintings, sculptures, and other works of art from across the centuries and a diverse range of disciplines.

The museum also holds "salon exhibitions," mini-exhibitions that showcase artists from or having ties with Shibuya. Additionally, it organizes open exhibitions, displays paintings by local elementary and junior high school students, and provides a space for Shibuya residents to present their works.

The Shoto Museum of Art was designed by renowned architect Seiichi Shirai. With a fountain and bridge in the atrium, as well as reddish granite walls for its exterior, the museum's unique structure and appearance are as much of a highlight as the works on display.
