TOKYO STROLL: Recommended art museums in the Roppongi area!

Roppongi is a city of art! The area is full of museums and this time we will introduce three museums you HAVE to visit in Roppongi!


The National Art Center, Tokyo, designed by Japanese architect Kisho Kurokawa. The museum also makes an appearance in the animation movie “Your Name” directed by Makoto Shinkai.

The National Art Center, Tokyo is one of the largest exhibition spaces in Japan. Since it owns no collection itself, it’s rather an “art center“ than a “normal“ museum. Don’t miss the amazing exhibitions focusing on new trends in art in Japan and the world regularly held here!
