Art Fair Tokyo returns for its 13th edition this year, this time with a slight rebranding with a new logo that reflects the 'Art is Life' theme. This year also sees one of the biggest offerings with 164 galleries showcasing their works. Hinging on their unique model of showcasing antiques and crafts alongside art, Art Fair Tokyo remains one of the biggest art fairs in Japan and a reflection of Japan's flourishing art scene!

Swipe to see some of the Asian art that caught our eye at the fair.
