Suntory Museum of Art
Designed by architect Kengo Kuma, the Suntory Museum of Art is owned by the Suntory corporation. Located in the fashionable neighbourhood of Roppongi, the museum is one of several large institutions in the area – including Mori Art Museum (MAM) and The National Art Center Tokyo (NACT) – and smaller venues, rounding-out one of Tokyo’s most notable arts precincts.
Located on the third and fourth floors of the Tokyo Midtown building, the museum holds around 3000 Eastern artworks including paintings, ceramics, glassware, textiles and lacquerware. The museum hosts a series of exhibitions each year rather than exhibit a permanent collection, along with a busy calendar of events and workshops.
Operating under the theme of ‘Art in Life’, the museum fuses Japanese and Eastern tradition with modern design and is committed to bringing art and joy into the lives of all who visit.
