In Japan, there are many traditional handicrafts with a strong local flavor, nurtured by the culture and history of the land. When picking up a traditional handicraft, it seems that along with warmth, the earnest temperament of the artisan that made it is conveyed as well. At “The Artisan’s Life” Exhibition held at Corridor Gallery 28, beautiful handicrafts are exhibited, together with the tools used by artisans day and night and the materials that tell of the process. Also, from Tokyo’s traditional handicraft “Edo woodblock prints”, landscape prints from the Edo period, when artisanal culture blossomed, and from Hiroshige’s “Meisho Edo Hyakkei,” have been selected to be exhibited alternately depending on each season. Please enjoy the scenery that the artisans of the past likely saw as well.

Park Hotel Tokyo is exploring the concept of “Infinite Time and Space Amid Cognizant Japanese Beauty” and engaging in a variety of activities to help our guests further experience the appeal of Japan and Japanese culture through the medium of art.
As part of our efforts, we have established the “Corridor Gallery”, an exhibition space in which guests can stroll through corridors and look at pieces of art as they might at an art museum. Set in the corridors of floors 26,27,28,30, 31, 32, 33 and 34, the space plays on the theme “Art for all” and reflects the hotel’s desire for people to feel art more closely.
