Explore 90 years of Japanese art in an iconic building.
The Tokyo Museum of Contemporary Art explores the work of Japanese artists in the 90 years since the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923, highlighting the social changes that have characterized this period in Japanese history.
The museum itself is a beautiful piece of architecture designed by Yanagisawa Takahiko to be a part of art. The huge white rooms are flooded with natural light from the skylights and the exhibits are complemented by blocks of natural wood and stone. Other highlights include a sunken garden, V-shaped structural supports, and a water and stone walkway.
