Located in Kanda Jimbocho, one of the world’s most prominent bookshop districts, just a stone’s throw from Marunouchi, the very center of Tokyo, Umi Gallery holds over 200 artworks on a regular basis. Staying true to our motto, “The easiest gallery to buy from”, we offer our artworks with a wealth of related information.
After 34 years in an open-plan gallery on the 4th floor of the Jimbocho flagship store of Sanseido, a large and long-established bookstore, we have now relocated to Suzuran-dori, Jimbocho. We continue to provide a friendly welcome to visitors from all over Japan, whether they are art collectors, office workers or tourists.
Our collection comprises a wide range of artists including Tsuguharu Foujita, Keiko Minami, Sadamasa Motonaga, Buffet, Cathelin and Sam Francis, as well as contemporary world-class Japanese artists such as Yayoi Kusama, Yoshitomo Nara and Takashi Murakami. We are happy to ship any of your purchases from the collection overseas.
In 2008 we opened the Museum of Contemporary Art, Karuizawa in the popular summer resort of Karuizawa, focusing on Japanese artists who went overseas to challenge new art movements of the world and thereby won international acclaim.
We look forward to welcoming you at Umi Gallery and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Karuizawa.
