A contemporary art exhibition takes over the historic stairway at the luxurious Hotel Gajoen Tokyo in Meguro. The Hyakudan Kaidan, which translates to ‘The Hundred Stairs’, is considered a tangible cultural asset of Tokyo, known for its ornate beauty. The venue also hosts occasional art events and exhibitions, this time collaborating with Asia’s largest online gallery TAGBOAT to present the work of 30 international artists working in a variety of mediums. Timed admission tickets are available in advance to ensure quick entry (guests without advance tickets may have to wait to avoid overcrowding). Please note that as this is a traditional Japanese structure guests will need to remove their shoes before entering, unfortunately wheelchair access is not available.
