If you're into architecture, especially Tadao Ando, you have to visit this place. It has many elements that has Ando's signature. The separated two buildings hold two different exhibitions. They have interesting exhibitions that you can't missed.

This is a highly experiential, edgy museum --what would you expect from Issey Miyake? Cool exhibits, cool neighborhood. It's a pleasant 10 min walk from Roppongi, why would you miss it? Great Instagramming potential!

This was great, loved this place. Curated by Issey Miyake and beautifully designed building. The exhibitions were great! Really done very well. Good spot for cherry blossoms also and a cheeky sparkling wine in the sun!

Akasaka / Roppongi
Not so long ago the Akasaka and Roppongi areas were
famous for their nightlife, high-class restaurants,
bars and clubs. More recently, with the opening of
Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka Sacas, the
area has declared itself as the most fashionable spot
to be seen. The area also hosts the National Art
Center and the Mori Art Museum and lots of trendy art
galleries.
