Xmas Art Festa is an art event featuring Ginza-area galleries that has been held every year since 2009.
Although Japan does not have a major custom of hanging up art in rooms, it is fun picking out the art you like, similar to choosing clothes or handbags.
The participating galleries will offer an array of exhibitions showcasing artists ranging from newcomers to established veterans, including Christmas-themed exhibits, that are an absolute must-see.
We hope that this event will let you experience the joy of having art in your life.
When: Friday, December 8 to Saturday, December 16, 2023
Time: Varies with opening hours of each gallery
Participating galleries: 24 art galleries in the Ginza area
Annual special party on Saturday, December 9 at Hotel Monterey Ginza
Themed gallery tours to be held on Saturday, December 9
