The National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo has a main building and a craft museum in Kitanomaru Park, which is near the Imperial Palace, and is developing a business to widely raise interest in modern art. This museum was opened in Kyobashi, Chuo-ku on December 1, 1952 as the first national museum in Japan. The long-awaited long-awaited national exhibition facility where you can see contemporary art at any time, the former Nikkatsu Headquarters Building was redesigned by architect Kunio Maekawa and started its activities. After that, as the exhibition of the collection was gradually restricted due to the increase in the number of works held and the expansion of planned exhibitions, the relocation of the museum was under consideration, and a contribution from the Shojiro Ishibashi Council to the museum's architecture was requested. Due to the kindness, in 1969, a new building designed by architect Yoshiro Taniguchi was opened at the present location of Kitanomaru Park in Chiyoda-ku. In addition, in 1977, a craft museum opened in the former Konoe Division Command Center Government building (important cultural property) in Kitanomaru Park, and it continues to this day. The building of the main building has been familiar to many people for many years, but after 30 years of construction, it was extensively renovated and designed by the design of Sakakura Building Research Institute.
