This is a website that provides information on galleries, museums, and theaters for art lovers.This website provides information on galleries, museums, and theaters in Tokyo and six other prefectures in the Kanto region.
The Kanto region includes Tokyo, Kanagawa, Chiba, Saitama, Tochigi, Gunma, and Ibaraki prefectures, of which Tokyo is home to many galleries and museums. Among them, there are many galleries and museums in Tokyo, especially in Chuo Ward, Tokyo.
These galleries and museums exhibit the works of a wide variety of artists, including Japanese, foreigners, young unknown artists, and world-famous artists. In the theaters, traditional performing arts such as Noh, Kyogen and Rakugo are performed, as well as cutting-edge art performances.
For example, contemporary art represented by Takashi Murakami, Yayoi Kusama, and Yoshitomo Nara, as well as Butoh, a unique Japanese performance art, and Buddhist statues, Ukiyoe, ceramics, and Japanese paintings produced by the unique culture of Japan, can be viewed in numerous galleries and museums, and can even be purchased at the galleries.
Unfortunately, as of 2020, the world has been stripped of its freedom by the threat of the coronavirus. It is no longer possible to travel casually. Of course, galleries, museums, and theaters are having a hard time due to the corona.
Likewise, it has become difficult for artists to sell or even show their works. Art fans are also finding it very difficult to see and touch the works they like.
We believe that the day will come when the world will be a vibrant place again, and many people will be traveling around the world. For that day, we want people to know about our website. We hope that our website will be of use to art fans visiting Japan.
Now that I can't go out, I hope that you can feel the beauty of Japanese art even a little through this website. And when the coronavirus is under control and you visit Japan, please use this website and have fun.
Finally, our native language is not English. So there may be some wrong expressions or words. If so, please feel free to let us know.
We sincerely hope that you will be able to find some wonderful artworks.
