Roppongi Art Night 2024


Roppongi Art Night (modeled after the famous “Nuit Blanche” festivals around the world) has become one of the biggest art events. Not only are the attendance numbers growing, the scale of the event and number of installations, sub-events, and performances has also exploded.

The 2023 theme is “Urban Life Encyclopedia”. To quote the organizers, the event will “explore, through visual arts and performance, how not only humans, but also animals, insects, plants, and other living creatures nurture life and coexist within the ecosystem of Roppongi.”

The event typically features amazing 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.

Even though it’s a “night”, it actually runs from 10 a.m. Saturday until 6 p.m. Sunday. However, it’s most atmospheric (and crowded) after dark.
