Tokyo Art and Museums

Explore Art and Museums in Tokyo


Japanese art spans many media and is derived from a variety of influences. From traditional bronze sculpture to manga and everything in between, the finest examples of Japanese art can be seen in the museums and galleries of Tokyo. The Tokyo National Museum exhibits sculptures, paintings, archaeological objects derived from Japanese, Korean and Chinese traditions.

Known for its collection of art created by European artists, the National Museum of Western Art purchases artwork every year to continue to expand its already impressive collection. Visit Edo-Tokyo Museum to learn about the history of Tokyo. Its permanent exhibitions include a life-sized replica of the Nihonbashi, the bridge leading to Edo. For a fun side trip, visit the Kite Museum, where you can see lots of beautiful kites and even an on-site kite maker.
