Japan Private Art & Architecture Tours

The internationally acclaimed arts and architecture of Japan continue to delight and inspire, offering art lovers a mix of artworks ranging from the classical and to the contemporary in their appeal.

Japanese traditional architecture in the temples and shrines can be appreciated all across the country, but locations such as Kinkaku-ji (The Golden Pavilion) and Kiyomizu Temple in Kyoto really stand out with their simple, yet thought-provoking design. When marveling at sheer massive size, consider Todaiji Temple, which was until 1998 the world’s largest wooden building. And the landscape gardens of Japan can be appreciated for such simple and beautiful natural elements which complement each other to provide a moment of quiet contemplation. Then there are the unique designs of renowned Japanese architect Tadao Ando. Naoshima Island houses a few museums designed by the Pritzker Prize-winning architect.

Tokyo has several museums that exhibit Japan’s artistic evolution from ancient times to the modern day in their display of historical craftsmanship and artwork. The Nezu Museum displays several of Japan’s Important Cultural Properties, with an impressive collection of Buddhist iconography. The Edo Tokyo Museum takes viewers back to Japan’s feudal era with exhibits centered around the period of almost 300 years ruled by members of the Tokugawa family. And the Hakone Open Air Museum incorporates the surrounding landscape in its modern artworks to enhance the beauty and meaning of each sculpture.

However, when many people think of the art of Japan, younger people often think of manga and anime. This vibrant, colorful, and bold style of art are most often represented in Japanese comics and animation, but can be seen around major cities everywhere you look. The Ghibli Museum in Tokyo is considered one of the finest anime museums, with exhibits based on the animation films by Studio Ghibli – one of the most famous animation studios in the world.
