The National Art Center, Tokyo - 国立新美術館

The National Art Center, Tokyo is the fifth art institution in Japan. Rather than house its own collection, the Center holds a variety of art exhibitions. The eye-catching giant wave-like glass facade exterior of the building was designed by the world-renowned architect Kisho Kurokawa. Visitors can also enjoy spending time in the museum shop which sells goods containing logos designed by Kashiwa Sato or dine at Paul Bocuse's three star French restaurant "Brasserie Paul Bocuse Le Musee", his first restaurant to open outside of France.
