9 best contemporary art galleries in Tokyo

投稿日:2020-03-27 更新日:

Introducing the most advanced art galleries in Tokyo.

The contemporary art gallery in Tokyo is divided into three areas. 

  • Roppongi area centered on the Mori Art Museum and the National Art Center, Tokyo.
  • Terada Art Complex, a short walk from Shinagawa Station.
  • An area centered on the chic fashion town of Omotesando and Shibuya. 

Then I will introduce. It is good to go around these three areas in time to visiting TOKYO contemporary art galleries.

Roppongi art scene where the highest peak galleries gather in Japan

First, let’s introduce around Roppongi station.

The Mori Building Mori Art Museum and The National Art Center, Tokyo. is always holding an international ART exhibition

Complex  665.

If you want to see black and white photos that symbolize the city of Tokyo, such as Araki and Daido Moriyama, I recommend Taka Ishii Gallery in the Gallery Complex  665.

This building has a gallery of contemporary art that represents Japan, such as ShugoArts, and Tomio Koyama gallery, which also participates in international art fairs, where you can see many seasonal art.


Just next to the building is the Piramide Building, which houses a gallery. The gray building that surrounds the courtyard houses the contemporary art gallery, which represents the 80’s.

If you add two other galleries that I recommend.

You can see the young Japanese art such as Kosaku kanechika gallery and Nukaga Kotaro gallery, which are newly independent young gallery.

It is also fun to see the downtown area of Tokyo by taking the red train Keikyu LINE from JR Shinagawa Station and walking from two stations, Kita Shinagawa or Shinbaba Stations. It takes about 5 minutes on foot from Rinkai Line Tennozu station. If you take a bus from Shinagawa station, you will be in front of you.

I found art galleries on my own foot in various cities in Europe and found the pleasures better than a popular touristic place.

Milan, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Amsterdam, Berlin, Paris, London, New York. I want you to tell the wonderful experience in the art city of Tokyo.

If you are still unsatisfied, visit my art studio on the large Tama River between Yokohama and Tokyo. 15 minutes from Shibuya. We look forward to at any time. Email

So, have a good trip.
