This relatively large contemporary art gallery is conveniently located just behind Yokohama City Hall, in one of the beautifullly restored Imperial Silkworm Warehouse buildings that date back to 1926. Run by the BankART 1929 NPO, they exhibit a range of contemporary Japanese artists in solo and group shows.

The sprawling museum shop area next to the main gallery showcases the work of local artists and artisans, and includes a small cafe corner.
