Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Nanzuka was formerly known as Nanzuka Underground (2005-2011) due to its basement location. Despite being just five to ten minutes away from the frenetic Shibuya Station, Nanzuka is surprisingly calm and quiet, perfect for a leisurely art-viewing experience.

This discreet yet charming gallery aims to help Tokyo rediscover postwar Japanese artists who have either been ignored or forgotten, such as pop artist Keiichi Tanaami, who created ‘No More War’, a psychedelic anti-war poster, and illustrator Hajime Sorayama, whose works often portray feminine robots in super-surreal and erotic styles.

The gallery also supports emerging Japanese artists by providing them with a stepping stone into the international art scene. Nanzuka is often involved in collaborations with creatives in other industries – such as fashion, design and music – which expands its influence beyond the borders of fine art.
