National Art Center Tokyo (NACT) Tours

National Art Center Tokyo (NACT)
Like much of the Roppongi neighborhood, the National Art Center Tokyo (NACT) is sleek and innovative. The museum, designed by Kisho Kurokawa was designed to look like a melting iceberg with waving blue glass walls.

This center is unique among Tokyo art museums in that, instead of maintaining a permanent collection, it is a revolving door venue for art exhibitions from around the world. It has the largest exhibition space of any museum in Japan and can hold up to ten exhibitions at a time although it's usually not completely full.

While some of the shows require admission there are usually a few free exhibitions at any given time. The building itself is worth exploring for its sleek architecture, public spaces and restaurants perched high on wooden pedestals. Check their website for a rundown of what's currently showing.

The National Art Center, Tokyo (2 hours) This is a place where Tsuji visits on a date with senior Okudera who is longing for a part-time job. The two people eat at the “Salon de Terondo” on the second floor of the building. This cafe with a conical shape floating in the air seems to be popular for its high-quality sweets such as cakes and macaroons. We have prepared a trip around the building because it is a spot that is a secret spot among the locals. 2. Move to Shinanomachi by electric bicycle (15 minutes) 3. Sakai JR Shinanomachi-mae footbridge (30 minutes) The footbridge that appears many times in the play is just off JR Shinanomachi Station on the left. This is where Mio and Okudera farewell date and Mitsuha who visited Tokyo tried to call him. You can take a walk, and the docomo tower seen from here is also a spectacular spot. 4. Seitoku Memorial Picture Gallery (1 hour) The building reflected in the background of the school scene of the samurai and others is the “Saintoku Memorial Painting Hall” on the Jingu Gaien near JR Shinanomachi Station. This museum, which is designated as an important cultural property of the country, displays a precious huge mural depicting the progress of Japanese modernization from the end of the Edo period to the Meiji period. Mural paintings are the times when Japanese clothes are changing from kimono to clothes. The mix of Japanese tradition and Western culture is very interesting, and it is worth seeing if you want to know Japan a little older than today. * Tickets will be prepared if you apply in advance. 5.
