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.
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.
