AIR 3331 OPEN CALL July - September, 2018 now closed. We thank you for your applications!


In the core of downtown Tokyo, AIR 3331 sits in one of the most eclectic neighborhoods in Japan called Kanda. 3331 Arts Chiyoda is a convenient base between sites of tradition and the ultra-modern. Studios and accommodations have easy access to key areas of the art scene and 3331’s audience, and are within walking distance from cultural gems like the used book district of Jimbocho or the pop culture mecha of Akihabara.

Deep Culture at your Doorstep

Kanda River exudes tradition, with the nearby Yushima Seido and Kanda Myoujin Shrine - the site of one of Japan's most renowned festivals "Kanda Matsuri", which 3331 joins every time. Go deeper and you will find shops passed down over generations, and workshops of traditional craftspeople. Asakusa and Ameyoko markets, as well as historical architectural masterpieces like the Imperial Palace and Tokyo Station are but a stones-throw away. Get local by exploring the many cafes, music and sports shops and the used book district of Jimbocho surrounding the accommodations.

Art Scenes Both Local and Large

Explore the cutting-edge spaces of East Tokyo, where the unused school that has become 3331 Arts Chiyoda sits among many local revitalization projects, including old bathhouses and apartments that are now galleries and creative spaces. The green, museum-rich Ueno Park is a quick walk from 3331. Every season has its own arts festivals and events, including Trans Arts Tokyo - unique to the Kanda area, and a great opportunity for resident artists to collaborate! Look deeper to find rare and quality materials for artwork production are all long as you are willing to search!
