SCAI THE BATHHOUSE is a contemporary art gallery located in Taito-ku. The gallery introduces cutting-edge Japanese artists and foreign artists that are not yet known in Japan. So far there are exhibitions that feature such people as Lee Ufan, Yoko Tadanori, Endo Toshikatsu, Miyajima Tatsuo, Mori Mariko and there is also a focus on discovering young artists.
The building was renovated from a local public bathhouse with a 200-year history and therefore the facade of the museum takes advantage of the appearance of the bathhouse just as it was. Inside the museum the vast, white space spreads out. It can be viewed free of charge.
The nearest station is Nippori Station on the JR Yamanote line and from the South Entrance it is a 6-minute walk to the gallery. If coming from Nezu Station on the Chiyoda subway line, it is 7-minutes walking distance to the gallery.
