Roppongi Art Night 2021

10:00am – 6:00pm
Free

Roppongi Art Night (modeled after the famous “Nuit Blanche” festivals around the world) has already become one of the major art events in Tokyo with nearly a million people joining last year’s hurrah.

Not only are the attendance numbers growing, the scale of the event and number of installations, sub-events and performances has also exploded. This year, the event has switched from an after-work Friday night to a Saturday night. An even bigger change is switching the event back to a date in spring (recent events have been in autumn).

The event features installation art, live art and performances centered on the three points of the Roppongi Art Triangle—Tokyo Midtown, The National Art Center Tokyo and Roppongi Hills.
