Hara Museum

Hara Museum of Contemporary Art is a museum in Shinagawa, Tokyo where you can enjoy post-1950's contemporary art from Japan and abroad.

Hara Museum of Contemporary Art was opened in 1979 as a museum of contemporary art utilizing a western-style building designed by Jin Watanabe, who modeled it on 1930's European-style architecture. It houses an art collection of more than 1,000 works from Japan, Europe, Asia and Latin America and introduces a wide range of post-1950's contemporary art including paintings, sculptures, photographs, videos and installation art. There is a cafe facing the courtyard where you can relax and enjoy a drink or a dish made with seasonal ingredients after enjoying the world of art. In the museum shop you will find items that may add an artistic touch to your every day life. It is 15-minute walk from the Takanawa exit of JR Shinagawa Station. Alternatively, you can take the Toei bus bound for Gotanda Station from Shinagawa Station, get off at the Gotenyama stop and walk three minutes.
