Art and architecture enthusiasts should not miss the chance to visit The National Art Center, Tokyo. The center, opened in 2007, is noted for being an empty museum, meaning it doesn’t feature a permanent collection. Admire the imposing modern building, designed by Kisho Kurokawa and boasting a striking wavy glass facade. Step inside to admire the interior of the building, view one of the popular temporary displays, or check out the gift shop, restaurant, and cafe.

  • It was Lee Ufan's exhibition that's showing when I visited. This place is just amazing. If you're an Arts fan, this place is a must to visit. There will be several halls that have different exhibitions, so you may just pay which exhibition that you would like to visit. Besides, the architectural designs of this building is amazing too. I totally enjoyed my time here.
  • Astonishing current exhibit of Japanese fine art. Massive numbers of brilliant works, including traditional calligraphy/poetry, sculpture, large-scale, Japanese-style contemporary paintings. Shear amount of great art makes this a potential, multi-day visit.
