This unique little museum was built together with artists. All sorts of artwork lurks within, from art placed in the most unexpected spots to a more typical layout, from what you’d expect from the backs of offices & museums to uninhabited islands. Here at sequence MIYASHITA PARK in Shibuya, another small museum was born. Our core concept is: if it’s put on a pedestal, does that make it art? Following this, we’ve installed pedestals around the property, from the entrance to our guest rooms. Since the hotel appears as a public object, we’ve added to our rooms objects that hold the memories of Shibuya. If you ask yourself, is this art?, you find yourself thinking about whether it holds value. You find yourself thinking about the connection between people, the world, and objects and wondering about these varied values and connections. We implore you to consider art as an intermediary for the chance to connect with the world and humanity.
The hotel entrance arts serves as an open exhibition from the museum for anyone wandering in from the park.
Those who love lovers, love themselves. Those who watch lovers, watch themselves.
Zymotic Electro Plants (2017)
The amount of work put in up to this point is evident.
Until the manufacturing process of zymosis was discovered, no one knew of its spontaneity, and thus we have Zymotic Electro Plants.
A picture of humans. Their silliness, their pain, their seriousness...and of course, their silliness. All of it is encompassed in this work.
In our guest rooms is the world’s smallest museum with the work at 20 cm x 20 cm.
The Story of One Page
This work uses the streets and station of Shibuya as a base. This series invokes the use of your imagination for the context by mixing up connections between common, supplementary, and explanatory in picture and words.
Methods of Combination
This series is focused on the combination of items gathered from Shibuya Station and its streets with seemingly unrelated words.
This series involves materials obtained at the time of an incident at Shibuya Station or in its surrounding streets.
Rubbish on the Road
The trash before your eyes; every single piece is garbage. The revelation here is that we pretend not to see it, making it today’s current problem.

A love letter to things unseen
Let's spell out our love to things unseen. In this world, things are built and things collapse. As such, we must always seek to build. Where is the love for the existence of things that are lost, for things that don’t sparkle before our eyes? If you look at something long enough, you'll be sure to find something to like.
Puddle Sound × Yasaharu Okochi
The guest room’s design features modern-day Tokyo. Original field recordings from the streets of Shibuya play, complete as an art piece with an enhanced valve amplifier. When they’re overlapped, they form a Tokyo you’ve never experienced before.
THE CHAIN MUSEUM
The Chain Museum is a project by Masamichi Toyama of Smiles and the creator group PARTY under the theme: Making the Next Way Of Art.
