Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
This is an alternative-history MoMA, one consisting mostly of Japanese art from the turn of the 20th century onwards. Noteworthy features of the permanent collection are portraits by early Japanese modernist Ryusei Kishida and wartime paintings. The 1969 building was designed by Yoshiro Taniguchi (father of architect Yoshio Taniguchi) and has been renovated several times. Its location next to the moat and walls of the Imperial Palace makes it a prime stop for viewing springtime cherry blossoms and autumn foliage.
