We truly believe that Tokyo is the greatest art city on the planet, and we want to share this passion with you on our Tokyo Art Tours.
As the capital since the 1600s, Tokyo has been a focal point of the Japanese Art scene for centuries. As well as the domesitc art on display, its place as a wealthy, developed, Asian capital has allowed the various museums and galleries to amass a huge collection from all over the continent, and indeed the world. The Tokyo public is prepared to come out in droves for major Western art exhibitions. There is a cornucopia of private galleries showcasing the best of Japanese and International contemporary art, and they are helped in this mission by the generous exhibition space offered by retail outlets.
Maction Planet’s Tokyo Art Tours are very popular with our guests. However, you do not need to do a specialist art tour to enjoy the street art, statues and exhibitions in Tokyo. Art plays a part in all of our tours through iconic and backstreets Tokyo as it is such an important part of the fabric of the World’s Greatest Metropolis.
Mac, our Founder and Lead Guide, has travelled to over 100 countries and is a huge art buff. He has visited almost all of the world’s major art galleries and can place what you are seeing in a global context. He is a member of many of Tokyo’s galleries and museums. He frequently writes about Tokyo’s art scene on the Maction Planet Blog and for Tokyo Art Beat, one of Tokyo’s largest art websites.
