Tokyo Art Navigation
What is Tokyo Art Navigation?

Tokyo Art Navigation is a website that was established with the aim of bringing art closer to the citizens of Tokyo by introducing the current culture and art scene in Tokyo. There are many exhibitions and concerts being held in the art museums and music halls of Tokyo. The Tokyo Art Navigation site introduces information on these activities in real time.

In addition, in an effort to support the activities of artists, the site also provides information as to activity spaces, available grants-in-aid, as well as contests. It is expected that the site will be fully utilized as a venue from which artists engaged in creative activities will be able to distribute their work and activity information.

Moreover, our site provides "Tokyo Digital Museum" where valuable works and resources owned by the Tokyo Metropolitan Edo-Tokyo-Museum, the Edo-Tokyo Open Air Architectural Museum, the Tokyo Photographic Art Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo are introduced. The site intends to provide opportunities for people in Tokyo to gain a deeper understanding of extensive works, resources and common assets through this site.

(This site is operated by the Tokyo Metropolitan Foundation for History and Culture through a subsidy from the Tokyo Metropolitan Government.)
