Advertising Museum Tokyo アド・ミュージアム東京

The Advertising Museum Tokyo (ADMT) is located in the Caretta Shiodome Building in the Shiodome district of Tokyo close to Shimbashi Station in Minato ward.

ADMT Exhibits

The Advertising Museum Tokyo is Japan's first museum dedicated to advertising and marketing and opened in 2002. ADMT collects, preserves and exhibits advertisements in all their forms from both Japan and overseas and was established by the Yoshida Hideo Memorial Foundation.

The heart of the permanent collection introduces the history of Japanese advertising from the Edo Period to the present day.

On display are early Edo era advertisements such as colorful woodblock prints (nishiki-e), summer fans and flyers (hikifuda) for kabuki and other forms of entertainment, as well as more westernized forms of advertising introduced from the West during the succeeding Meiji Period such as newspaper and magazine ads.

The Taisho Period saw the emergence of the father of Japanese graphic design, Hisui Sugiura (1876-1965) and the era of high-quality posters for specific events. The era of 20th century advertising is introduced in an pop-art collage of popular products, as well as seminal issues of newspapers, album and CD covers and magazines.

Video screens throughout the museum space present foreign and Japanese classic TV ads and the 21st century of digital advertising is represented on the 21st Century Wall using the keywords of "Asia", "Digital" and "Eco-friendly."

Other exhibits include a TV and Radio Commerials Corner, Public Service advertising, an Audio-Visual Hall and Outdoor Advertising including neon signs.

ADMT also showcases the prestigious London-based D&AD Awards in a yearly exhibition.
