A modern architectural marvel itself, NAC Tokyo attracts people to its various exhibitions and creative shows. There are few stylish restaurants in unique settings.

Very relaxing atmosphere. Different from busy Tokyo city, you can find peace here. The exhibitions are always good, at least the ones I've came.

Buehrle Collection was really fantastic where we enjoyed 64 masterpieces of Impressionist. The art center itself is located very close from the Tokyo Midtown bldg. in Roppongi. It’s a beautiful structure and good for walking.

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.

Hello there! Yes, the entrance is free to the building itself. If you want to go to an exhibit, you will be charged, depending on which exhibit. It is a beautiful building all on itself! ❤️

It's Japan so basically both of them can be and it's not really packed there, so if you don't know what time are you going or when are you going to reach I'd rather you buy it when you reach there
