A contemporary art gallery open in 1993 which is housed inside a former bathhouse and building that is over 200 years old. The gallery is known for introducing Japan’s avant-garde artists to the world as well as for helping foreign artists establish a presence in Japan.

The style is minimalistic and simple: white walls, concrete floor, and natural light coming in from the ceiling. Incidentally, apart from being in the art district of Yanaka, SCAI The Bathhouse is also less than a minute from Ueno Sakuragi Atari, a cluster of renovated Showa buildings with a craft beer house.

Getting there
The gallery is a short walk from the South Exit of JR Yamanote Nippori Station or Nezu Station on the Chiyoda Line.
12:00-18:00 Tuesday to Saturday (may be closed in-between exhibitions so check out the official website)
