Art Museum

The Crafts Gallery was established as an annex to the National Museum of Modern Art in 1977. The displays in the Craft Gallery showcase modern and contemporary crafts and design, including ceramics, glassware, lacquerware, woodcarving, bamboo crafts, textiles and dyeing, doll-making, metalworking, industrial design, graphic design, etc. The building in which the Crafts Gallery is located was formerly the Imperial Guards Headquarters. Built in 1910, this is a beautiful building which has been designated as a National Important Cultural Property and is well worth seeing in its own right.

Tokyo Main Areas


The setting of countless iconic movie scenes and the inspiration for songs, poetry, and literature worldwide, Tokyo barely requires an introduction. It's hard for the kaleidoscopic neon lights, wacky pop culture, and some of the world's tallest structures not to instill excitement in any first-time visitor to Tokyo, whether you're in the very center of the hustle and bustle in Shinjuku or Shibuya or looking in from the quieter suburbs.
