The Tokyo Station Gallery is a museum located in an Important Cultural Property, Tokyo Station Marunouchi Building. Exhibitions and events in a variety of themes are held there.
The Tokyo Station Gallery, located in front of the Marunouchi North Exit of the JR Tokyo Station, is probably the most convenient art gallery in Japan to access by the public transportation. It was in 1998 when this art gallery opened its doors on the premises of the majestic Tokyo Station Marunouchi Building, which speaks of the modern history of Japan. It reopened in the fall of 2012 when the renovation and restoration work for the station building was completed. The exhibition floors comprises the modern third floor and the second floor, where a historical ambiance can be felt. The highlight of the gallery is the exhibition room on the second floor where the brick walls originally constructed are made the best use of, and this is the only place you can see the brick walls that are older than 100 years in one place. You can enjoy an architectural attraction in addition to exhibitions with various themes. The circular corridor on the second floor, from which you can observe the traffic of people within the station, will not let you feel bored. In the museum shop on the second floor, original goods you can only see at the art gallery located within the Tokyo Station can be purchased.
