The Hara Museum of Contemporary Art is one of the oldest contemporary art museums in Japan. The museum is in the Kita-Shinagawa district, in the Shinagawa area of Tokyo.
The building was originally built as a private mansion designed by Jin Watanabe in 1938 for the grandfather of current museum president and international collector Toshio Hara. Designed in a Bauhaus style, it is a rare example of early Shōwa period architecture . Following the war, it was used by the US and then served as the Embassy of the Philippines and the Embassy of Sri Lanka.
