Art Maps Around The World – Part 1: Tokyo

After launching our Tokyo Art Maps in early 2008, we looked at some other art maps that we found around Tokyo.

With 700 venues and more than 400 art and design events listed on Tokyo Art Beat, it can get quite daunting to try and find an event to visit in Tokyo, even for seasoned art-goers. Luckily, the past couple years have seen the launch of a few art maps, including our beautiful Tokyo Art Map in early 2008, that help us sort the best from the rest and make our Tokyo outings more enjoyable!
Let’s take a look at some of the other art maps that one can find around Tokyo.

Next time, we’ll look into NYC art maps. We are looking for other art maps in US, Europe, China. We have a few already, but if you want us to review them, please send them to our office address. Thank you!
