SCAI The Bathhouse
SCAI The Bathhouse is the one of the leading contemporary art galleries in Japan.
SCAI The Bathhouse is a contemporary art gallery located in Yanaka, with a town ambience reminiscent of Old Tokyo. In walking proximity to Ueno, an area dense with museums and art colleges, the gallery is housed in a venerable public bath imbued with a 200-year history. Take one step inside, and you find a white cube and mortar floor with soft natural light descending from the high ceiling. Treasuring the past while updating the space for the future, SCAI has been familiar to both local and international visitors as a center for the latest contemporary art.
