Occupy Kasumigaseki Anti-nuclear Tent Museum - Now Open!

Occupy Kasumigaseki Anti-nuclear Tent Museum - Now Open!


The Tent Square (in front of METI) was first initiated on 11th September 2011, being constructed on the edge of a small park outside the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) in the heart of Kasumigaseki, Tokyo. For more than 4 years, the tent has acted as a symbol of the opposition of many citizens to nuclear power and has provided a space for numerous gatherings, concerts, events and exchanges.
In March 2013, a lawsuit was filed against the tent demanding its removal and in October 2015, the High Court rejected the appeal made by Tent Square members against this. Currently, a final appeal is being made to the Supreme Court, yet despite this, the tent could be forcibly removed at any time in accordance with the previous judgement of the court.
With such a looming threat, members of the Tent Square and their supporters have determined to raise their voices even louder, bringing further attention to their message against nuclear power, against nuclear power plant restarts and against the export of nuclear power technology. As part of this appeal, the “Tent square for Women against nukes - fight with Fukushima” has dedicated its space to the Occupy Kasumigaseki Anti-nuclear Tent Museum.



In this museum, work of artists who have long dedicated themselves to anti-nuclear efforts is directly painted upon the tent itself, or is boldly hung through the tent space, further compounding the anti-nuclear message. Occupy Kasumigaseki Anti-nuclear Tent Museum will continue to promote this message until the end, up to the last moment as the government authorities attempt to bring a stop to the Tent Square’s activities.


We welcome you to visit the museum and experience the works for yourself while you still can!
