With one of the largest exhibition spaces in JapanNACT is a popular art museum that attracts over two million visitors from around the world each year, with various exhibits ranging from modern and contemporary art around the world to manga, architecture, and fashion.
In addition to the exhibitions, NACT offers ample ways to pass the time with three cafes and a restaurant, as well as a store with a wide selection of products. The photogenic building with its corrugated glass "curtain wall", designed by architect Kisho Kurokawa, is an attraction in itself. Despite being in the center of the city, the interior is infused with light and the green of the trees, allowing visitors to experience the concept of "an art center surrounded by green spaces".
