Basic Information


Art museum inside Tokyo Station

Tokyo Station Gallery was established in Tokyo Station Marunouchi Building in 1988 with the desire to offer the station passengers a place for fragrant culture. Since our establishment, we have become known as an art museum with unique exhibitions and brick wall that embody the history of Tokyo Station.
We temporarily closed due to restoration work of Tokyo Station in 2006, and made a new start in the autumn of 2012 in a form that has further evolved in line with the times in the restored station building.
Tokyo Station Marunouchi Building was constructed in 1914 from a design by the architect Tatsuno Kingo. Tokyo Station is the origin of railways up and down Japan and is positioned as the "central station" established by being the 0 kilo post of many main lines. The station has struggled as an eyewitness through numerous turbulent times as the stage of modern history in Japan.
We will continue to be active in the future while deeply recognizing the significance of carrying out our activities as an art museum in the important cultural property of Tokyo Station that is located at the geographical and historical heart of Japan.
