Tips from the community

Within a 10-minute walk from Roppongi Station sits one of the largest exhibition spaces in Japan. The National Art Center is an intricately designed museum, featuring temporary exhibitions, including world-famous artists like Monet and Magritte. While situated in an area that’s famous for shopping and nightlife, this museum is a small oasis of beautiful grounds away from the busy streets. The architecture of the building is truly striking and encompasses the multi-exhibition space, gift shop, and chic cafe.
