Famous despite being anonymous, the street artist Banksy is known for a trademark stenciling technique and works that often have political or societal themes. The Tokyo leg of the "Banksy: Genius Or Vandal?" event reignites the question of whether graffiti is art or vandalism, after already having toured several destinations in Japan including Osaka, Yokohama, Nagoya, and Fukuoka.

The event will showcase around 70 original Banksy works including illustrations and 3D objects, along with experience-based multimedia displays.

If you plan to attend, do note that admission prices differ between weekdays and weekends/public holidays:

Weekdays: Adults ¥ 1,800, College / High School students ¥ 1,600, Junior high school students and younger ¥ 1,200

Weekends/holidays: Adults ¥ 2,000, College / High School students ¥ 1,800, Junior high school students and younger ¥ 1,400

Getting there

The event takes place at the With Harajuku mall, located directly across from Harajuku Station on the JR Yamanote Line.
