A great place to see some of the best artwork from Japan (and beyond). Designed by architect Kisho Kurokawa, the modern and innovative building holds over 14,000 square meters of exhibition space and is one of the largest galleries in Japan.
There is no permanent display here, no collection or curator—it is purely a space for visiting exhibitions from both Japan and abroad. The center has had great success, with a Monet exhibition in 2007 being the second-most visited exhibition in the world.
There are often free exhibits on the second and third floors, though tickets are required for the main exhibitions.
