The Suntory Museum of Art exhibits works based on a “Lifestyle Art” theme, challenging visitors to see art in the things around them. The collection—the biggest in Japan—contains exhibits ranging from paintings to lacquerware. The museum also has a traditional Japanese tea room on the 6th floor where visitors can participate in a tea ceremony held on designated Thursdays (see the website for details).
