Gallery in The Ichigaya, Kagurazaka area
Eitoeiko debuted as a contemporary art gallery at the contemporary art fair 101Tokyo in April, 2009. It features only contemporary works of fine art and remarkable items that push the boundaries between what is art and what is not. It brings Japanese art overseas and introduces foreign artists to Japan.
Eitoeiko is located in the quiet Tokyo residential neighborhood of Yaraicho, Kagurazaka. It is a five-minute walk from the Yarai Exit at Tokyo Metro Kagurazaka Station. The area gets its name from the bamboo palisades once used for the residences of members of the Obama clan.
The gallery is in a three-story wooden building designed by Tadashi Yasui of Craft Science and built by Nakajima Komuten. It is located in a light-filled atrium in the living area on the first floor. In the spring of 2010, it opened a café in an alley next to it. Eitoeiko produces new art from Yaraicho, a place where people of culture gather.
