Ginza Galleries will hold GINZA ART NIGHT on Friday, May 25, 2018. Ginza Galleries’ GINZA ART NIGHT event that began in 2004 is an annual event held in galleries from 5-chome to 8-chome in Ginza. Participating galleries will be open on this day until 9:00 p.m. and will offer refreshments and other services to let those who usually feel intimidated by art galleries enjoy carefree interaction with gallerists and artists.
