Up for a traditional Japanese cup of tea? Fancy a stroll through Paris? Or perhaps Prague is more your thing? Tokyo's art scene has it all — from mesmerizing portraits to avant-garde heavyweights— for those hankering for a little culture and escapism during the holidays — and even after.

It was Picasso who said that the purpose of art is “to wash the dust of daily life off our souls.” While living in Tokyo is an adventure in itself, there’s no doubt that a trip to a gallery can help inspire and invigorate. With Golden Week coming up, this may be the perfect time for you to lose yourself in one of the city’s cool art galleries or museums for some extra spark — you know, for when the holidays are over. From intimate shows in quieter suburbs to blockbuster exhibitions, there’s a whole lot of art in town. So here are five exhibits to get out and see over the holiday — all guaranteed to give you a creative lift.
