Ayumi Gallery

Gallery in The Ichigaya, Kagurazaka area

Based on the ground floor of an early 1950s half-timbered building, blending Japanese and English style, in Kagurazaka, Tokyo Ayumi Gallery is an exhibition space open to the proposals of artists and independent curators.
Since its opening in 1984, Ayumi Gallery has been a popular space for artists to present their work, whilst adding to the color of the local Kagurazaka district. The building was constructed in 1953, shortly after World War II, by Hiroshi Takahashi (1902-1991) as his atelier. Takahashi studied architecture in the UK from the late Taisho period to the early Showa period (1920-1930), the distinct architectural style of the building reflecting this influence.
In 2011, the building was designated as an official cultural property by the Japanese government, recognizing it as an important part of Japanese architectural history. The inside of the building has exposed beams and surfaces showcasing the natural materials used in construction, creating a warm, comfortable environment throughout the exhibition space.
Creators and audiences are welcome to come together in this space to share and inspire new discoveries.
