One of Japan's most dexterous and vast cultural spaces, Tokyo's National Art Center doesn't stand still: rather than housing a permanent collection, it instead hosts a constantly changing schedule of ambitious and comprehensive exhibitions. Opened 10 years ago, it marked its anniversary this year with...More

Does not have a standing collection but really does have amazing exhibitions. Loves seeing an amazing Gicometti collection there.

Akasaka / Roppongi
Not so long ago the Akasaka and Roppongi areas were
famous for their nightlife, high-class restaurants,
bars and clubs. More recently, with the opening of
Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka Sacas, the
area has declared itself as the most fashionable spot
to be seen. The area also hosts the National Art
Center and the Mori Art Museum and lots of trendy art
galleries.

Hello there! Yes, the entrance is free to the building itself. If you want to go to an exhibit, you will be charged, depending on which exhibit. It is a beautiful building all on itself! ❤️

It's Japan so basically both of them can be and it's not really packed there, so if you don't know what time are you going or when are you going to reach I'd rather you buy it when you reach there
