Museum Type: Art
Well regarded and unusual art gallery near Asakusa housed inside a beautiful old Edo warehouse which has managed to survive fires, air raids, and earthquakes. The gallery markets itself as a cafe/bar space and a place for cultural exchanges, and many of the works of art are themed around the historic area.
Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo
Museum opened in 1995 to display a collection of post-1945 modern and contemporary art from Japan and abroad. The museum has three floors of galleries devoted to temporary exhibitions and two floors for the “MOT Collection”—the museum’s permanent display of over 5,000 exhibits and works of art.
