The National Art Centre in Tokyo’s midtown is one of the city’s best art and culture destinations. Designed in 2007 by renowned architect Kisho Kurokawa, founder of the Japanese metabolism architecture movement, the buildings undulating glass facade allows for an incredible amount of natural light throughout the entire space. One of few museums in Japan that do not hold their own permanent museum collection, allowing for refreshingly diverse exhibitions ranging from American Pop Art to Yayoi Kusama, to the retrospective of renowned Japanese fashion designer Issey Miyake. Find a cafe on their ground and third floors, including a stellar museum library and magazine selection on the top floor.
