Tips from the community

Yayoi Kusama is a newly-opened contemporary art museum that presents major works from the influential Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama. Kusama has international acclaim, with exhibitions selling out from New York City to London. Kusama created the concept for the museum to allow fans an opportunity to have a deeper understanding of her work, with plenty of space for lectures and events. Kusama’s work includes that of sculpture, film, fashion, painting, and abstract expressionism. Her work carries meanings of feminism, sexuality, autobiographical, and psychological content. This museum is just outside of the busy metropolis of Shinjuku, located within the more low-key suburbs of the city.
