Posted on February 16, 2021

Tokyo will never disappoint when it comes to artistic exploration or affordable adventures, and Arts Chiyoda 3331 is no exception. Located in Akihabara, the worldwide hub of anime, manga, maid cafes and more, Chiyoda 3331 mobilizes the creative energy buzzing in the air to create an unforgettable experience. The art center was once a Chiyoda City Public School. The new design is minimalistic, allowing the art to shine as the centerpiece. The light filled space may evoke soft memories of learning and curiosity!
