The National Museum of Western Art国立西洋美術館

Art Museum

This art museum located within Ueno Onshi Koen (Ueno Park) in Tokyo’s Taito City is dedicated to collecting and displaying Western art. The main building itself is one attraction, having been designed by French architect Le Corbusier and registered as World Cultural Heritage site in 2016. With its core Matsukata Collection, a collection of works that belonged to businessman Kojiro Matsukata and were returned by the French government, the museum regularly displays Western paintings from pre-18th century paintings to early 20th century paintings such as Monet and Renoir, as well as French contemporary sculpture. It also holds many special exhibitions.

          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.
