Art Galleries, Tokyo

Tokyo
Japan
Concierge.com's insider take:

Tokyo's art scene is scattered throughout the city, and the galleries come in all shapes and sizes, from the colossal Tokyo National Museum in Ueno Park to the modernist Mori Art Museum in Roppongi to the Ota Memorial Museum of Art in Harajuku. For a snapshot of what's new and happening in the oddball world of Tokyo art, go to the harbor-front Kiyosumi neighborhood in Koto-ku, a 10- to 15-minute cab ride from Ginza. You'll find a cluster of some of Tokyo's best contemporary galleries in a converted warehouse at 1-3-2 Kiyosumi: Tomio Koyama (81-3-3642-4090; www.tomiokoyamagallery.com), Taka Ishii (81-3-5646-6050; www.takaishiigallery.com), and Shugo Arts (81-3-5621-6434; www.shugoarts.com/en/index.html). Koyama's artists include two of Japan's current stars, Takashi Murakami and Yoshitomo Nara, while Taka Ishii represents Nobuyoshi Araki, who has been photographing the underside of Tokyo for decades. Closer to Kayabacho station and the nearby financial district, you will find the prewar Inoue Building at 2-7-13 Nihonbashi-Kayabacho, which houses Masataka Hayakawa (81-3-5649-6369; www.masatakahayakawa.co.jp) and Taguchi Fine Arts (81-3-5652-3660; www.taguchifineart.com). Tokyo's Museum of Contemporary Art isn't far away, at 4-1-1 Miyoshi in Koto-ku, where Japanese and international art is showcased with a refined sense of whimsy (www.mot-art-museum.jp/english).
