In the capital city of Japan, travel and art lovers may head to the district of Roponggi. This area in Tokyo appears to be filled with leisure, residential and commercial spaces as well as big hotels. But at the heart of the Roponggi district lies quite a number of art museums and galleries such as the National Art Center, Roponggi Hills’ Moi Art Museum and Tokyo Midtown’s Suntory Museum of Art, among others. These three iconic museums are collectively regarded as the “Art Triangle Roppongi.”


The district of Roponggi hosts an overnight art event each year which is open to both locals and foreign tourists alike. This event came to be known as the Roponggi Art Night which is celebrating its tenth year anniversary this 2019. It features a variety of contemporary or modern art works such as innovative designs, original photography, artistic videos, music and other performances. The event will take place this coming May 25 to 26, 2019.


This year, the Roponggi Art Night intends to showcase fifty aesthetically pleasing art works and performances by both Japanese and foreign artists worldwide in a number of selected locations and public places all over the Roponggi district of Tokyo. The art event will focus on the theme “Night Journey, Daydream.”
