If you want to take an art walk in Minato Mirai, the first place you want to go is the Yokohama Museum of Art.

In addition to the "Collection Exhibition", which displays exhibits tailored to the theme from more than 12,000 collections of contemporary and contemporary art since the opening of the port, various "planning exhibitions" are held several times a year. Also, it is not well known that Yokohama is one of the first bases during the rise of photography. The photo collection is enriched after that.
