Hara Museum of Contemporary Art

The Hara Museum of Contemporary Art is located in the Tokyo’s Shinagawa ward. It was first established in 1979, but the building it resides in was built in 1938 for Kunizo Hara, a business magnate, and designed by Jin Watanabe, architect who designed the Tokyo National Museum. The museum has a collection of about 1,000 items that is comprised of paintings, photographs, videos, and sculptures from artists around the world. Among the collection the oldest works date back to the 1950s. Some of the works displayed are from notable artists like Andy Warhol, Lee U-Fan, Daisuke Nakayama, and many others. There is also a sculpture garden where you could see more works by more artists. The Café d’Art overlooks the museum courtyard and has a menu that reflects the works on display through their cakes. It has a sister museum called the Hara Museum ARC in Shibukawa City in Gunma Prefecture.
