The National Museum of Modern Art is located in the greenery of Kitanomaru Park. Although the museum building itself may not attract you to enter it, keep in mind that it hides a real treasure - the largest and most important collection of modern art in Japan. The museum is divided into several floors, so the main collection is divided into different artistic periods of Japan. You will have the opportunity to get acquainted with the greatest names in Japanese art. The lines that can be found in front of the front door testify to how much the museum has been visited.
The museum exhibits more than 13.000 paintings, graphics, drawings, video installations and sculptures. Although you will find works of art by international artists in the museum, the emphasis is still on Japanese art, specifically from the Meiji period to modern times. The museum houses the so-called crafting gallery, which exhibits a collection of almost 4.000 masterpieces of Japanese textiles, ceramics, bamboo works and other objects.
The museum also organizes exhibitions of a temporary nature and you can find out about them through the museum's website or on the spot.
You can have a guide in the museum who will explain Japanese art and guide you through the museum.
