With its eye-catching, giant wave like glass façade, which flows with the greenery that surrounds it, is the fifth national art institution in Japan. Making great use of its vast gallery space, it holds many exhibitions mostly focusing on modern contemporary art. Complete with an art library, museum shop, restaurant and café, it is an inner-city relax spot where you can enjoy art in a relaxed manner.

The National Art Center, Tokyo is a unique and innovative art exhibition facility: Instead of maintaining a permanent collection, it makes the most of a total of 14,000 square meters of exhibition space, one of the largest in Japan, and focuses on serving as a venue for various art exhibitions. The Center also promotes outreach activities through its educational programs, and the Art Library serves to collect and disseminate information related to art.
