Tel. 050-5541-8600 (Hello Dial, within Japan)
The Artizon Museum, operated by the Ishibashi Foundation and formerly known as the Bridgestone Museum of Art, opened in January 2020 as a new museum at the same location in Kyobashi, Tokyo. The new name, Artizon, was coined by combining the words art and horizon to reflect the museum’s determination to impart a sense of new horizons in pioneering art. The concept of the museum is “experiencing creativity.” In addition to the Impressionist and Japanese Western-style paintings from the modern period for which the Ishibashi Foundation Collection is renowned, new acquisitions include Postwar abstract paintings and early Japanese arts from the Edo period. These additions to the collection enlarge its breadth and depth, and they also make it possible to mount exhibitions that span from ancient periods to contemporary art.

The Artizon Museum is located in the lower section of the 23-story Museum Tower Kyobashi, with three floors of gallery rooms featuring state-of-the-art equipment to present the multifaceted pleasures of art.
