Roppongi Art Triangle Tour

Explore Tokyo’s fast-growing avant-garde art community.

What will I learn in this class?
On this tour led by an arts industry veteran, visit three unique galleries each presenting a new view of Tokyo’s art scene. First, stop by 21_21 Design Sight, a museum opened in 2007 by an architect and fashion designer.

Then, visit the National Art Center, Tokyo and smaller, backstreet galleries for a glimpse into how the past and future of art are intertwined.

Finally, wrap up the tour on the 53rd floor of the Roppongi Hills Tower at the acclaimed Mori Art Museum.

This tour includes a short break at a local café.
