TOKYO | The National Art Center, Tokyo opened in Roppongi in January 2007 and in that time has built a reputation as one of the best art museums in Asia (it’s the 20th most visited art museum in the world). It was designed by designed by Kisho Kurokawa (who also designed the new Kuala Lumpur Airport and the Exhibition Wing of the Van Gogh Museum) and is one of the largest exhibition spaces in Japan.

Similarly to a German Kunsthalle, the National Art Center doesn’t hold a permanent collection, rather it holds special exhibitions sponsored and curated by other organisations – up to 10 at a time. Artists that have been exhibited here are varied, from artists like Monet, Yayoi Kusama, and Cezanne to topics like Contemporary Art from Southeast Asia 1980s to Now. Entry to the museum’s center atrium, cafes, and shop is free, but the exhibitions do have a fee.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
