Overview

Art Space Tokyo is your intimate guide to Tokyo and its art world.

12 galleries and museums. 10 neighborhoods. Dozens of interviews with art curators and dozens of restaurant and cafe suggestions.

With this book, we set out to introduce the reader to twelve of Tokyo’s most distinctive galleries and museums. We are lovers of art, architecture and urban exploration, and having scoured the city for months and visited hundreds of venues, we have chosen what we feel are some of the most inspiring art spaces Tokyo has to offer.

We've also provided mini-guides to the areas the art spaces inhabit. In each chapter we shine our light on the best cafes & restaurants within walking distace of the museums and galleries.

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Review
"Much of the charm of the guide is in the little observations, the sly asides and the high and wide originality of the artists, whom Mod and Rawlings capture and pin to the page like a collection of polychromatic butterflies. This gorgeous book is a working guide, but it’s also a work of art. "

“... an unexpectedly stunning bit of cultural travelogue.”
