Art & Design
Located on the 52nd and 53rd floors of the Roppongi Hills Mori Tower, the Mori Art Museum was founded by real estate developer Minoru Mori, one of Japan's most powerful and influential building tycoons. Mori and his supporters built the space to feature the best in contemporary art and architecture.
The Mori Art Museum is accessible by train and taxi.
The closest station to the Mori Art Museum is Roppongi Station on the Hibiya Line. Traveling from Shinjuku, catch the Metro Oedo Line to Azabu-Juban Station and make the approximately 15-minute trip on foot or by taxi.
The gallery space has displayed works by some of the contemporary art world's biggest names, such as Ai Weiwei and Bill Viola. The museum is known as a proponent of Asian art, with many of the gallery's exhibits focusing on art from Japan and East Asia.
Displaying works that defy typical genre barriers, the museum and gallery host exhibits of traditional mediums like painting and sculpture along with less conventional art forms. In addition to exhibition-related programs, the museum offers sessions geared for kids, the disabled and seniors, including sign-language tours.
The Mori Arts Center Gallery is an art space next to the 52nd-floor observation deck of Roppongi Hills Mori Tower. It stages high-quality exhibitions featuring works from the world's top museums and others focusing on manga, anime and film, fashion and design from Japan and beyond.
