Shiraishi Contemporary Art Inc. opened the gallery in 1993, in the historic Yanaka district of Tokyo. Scai The Bathhouse is remodeled from a traditional Japanese public bathhouse, "Kashiwayu", which was established in 1787. In remodeling the space, the integrity of the original structure has been preserved, the space features typical Japanese roofing tiles, a 7 meter high ceiling, and skylights providing natural sunlight, making it ideally suited to the exhibition of contemporary art. SCAI has been exhibited the works of prominent artists, such as Tatsuo Miyajima, Masato Nakamura, Anish Kapoor, Julian Opie, Lee Bul, etc.
