Hara Museum of Contemporary Art

Lonely Planet review

Housed in a Bauhaus-style mansion from the 1930s, this museum is one of Tokyo’s more adventurous. In addition to cutting-edge exhibitions from Japanese and international artists, there are fascinating permanent installations designed especially for the house’s nooks and crannies. The garden-view cafe and excellent gift shop will make you extra glad you made the trip. It’s 1.5km from Shinagawa Station; check the website for a map.
