The University Art Museum
The Tokyo Fine Arts School (the predecessor of Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music) started to collect art materials for education and research prior to its foundation in 1887. These were first stored in the library called "Bunko" and then were archived in the University Library for many years after the unification of Tokyo Fine Arts School and Tokyo Music School in 1949. In 1970 music materials archived by the Faculty of Music since its preceding Tokyo Music School period, were added to the collection when the art section was separated from the library as the Art Museum, established as an inter-university research institute of the Faculty of Fine Arts and Faculty of Music.
In 1999 The University Art Museum was opened due to aged facilities and needs of commensurate storages and exhibitions space according to the scale of the collection. Today this collection is one of Japan's largest with about 28000 pieces based on Japanese modern art including art works of former teachers and students.
The library has a collection of about half a million volumes, relating mainly to arts and music. In addition to books and periodicals, the collection also holds a large number of music scores and audio-visual materials.
Among the library holdings are valuable source materials concerning the introduction of Western music to Japan in the late nineteenth century. This collection is used by a number of outside scholars.
Search facilities have been computerized. The library also offers on-line access to other research facilities. In addition to the lending and reference service, the library offers inter-library loans.
Sogakudo Concert Hall
Due to the expansion of forms of musical performance as well as to the deteriorating condition of our aging wooden concert hall, which was constructed during the university's previous status as the Tokyo School of Music, the new concert hall "Sogakudo" was built in 1998.
The design of the new hall places particular emphasis on facilities, acoustics, and function as a site for musical education and research, as well as being in complete harmony with the surrounding area.
Furthermore, the harmonious acoustics of the hall are such that the entire hall acts as one giant musical instrument. The concert hall is the first in the world in which the entire ceiling above the audience seating is movable, enabling the acoustic characteristics of the hall to be adjusted according to the music being played or the type of performance.
The Performing Arts Center
The center was newly founded in 1997. Many of its activities take place in the Sogakudo concert hall. In addition to serving as a forum for creativity and experimentation, the center also plays an important role making the work of the university accessible to the general public.
Among the center's activities are creation of new forms of spatial art using music, light, images and the human body; experimental ensembles combining ethnically diverse musics; creation and research into all aspects of theater, including planning, directing, performance, staging, and lighting design.
The center was founded in 2000. One of the shared facilities of the campus, it provides information technology support to all members of the university. The center runs an art media system. In addition to this it provides the campus network service, promotes information-oriented education and research, and facilitates application of computer technology in administrative affairs.
