Enjoy Japanese art works such as “ukiyoe” (Japanese woodblock prints) and Taro Okamoto’s works! Seven art museums and galleries in Shibuya/Harajuku.
Art is something that enriches your daily life. In this article, I will introduce to you some art museums and galleries in the Shibuya/Harajuku area.
Please check out the websites of the art museums/galleries noted below since some of them hold rotating exhibits.
Ota Memorial Museum of Art
An ukiyoe-specialized art museum in Tokyo. Not just Japanese ukiyoe-lovers but foreigners who are interested in Japanese culture visit this museum. The museum holds different exhibitions every month, therefore you can enjoy the world of ukiyoe from many aspects.
A quiet museum with an adjacent Japanese garden located in the center of Tokyo. They exhibit carvings, paintings and tea tools and hold special exhibition every season. You can enjoy a quiet time since there is also a café.
DESIGN FESTA GALLERY
A gallery where anybody can exhibit their own works. The venue (there are 71 spaces in total) is filled with new expressions and talents. Feel free to visit the gallery since the entrance fee is free.
Taro Okamoto Memorial Museum
The museum was originally Taro Okamoto’s house/atelier. After he passed away in 11996, at the age of 84 it was turned into a museum. You can feel the energy of Taro Okamoto who drew lots paintings, created documentations by dictation, wrestled against carvings, met with many people and created huge monuments like “Tower of the Sun”in Osaka and wall paintings.
