The Hara Museum ARC is the annex to Tokyo's Hara Museum of Contemporary Art in Shinagawa. Like its parent museum, the Hara Museum ARC displays a rotating exhibition of contemporary art by both Japanese and foreign artists. In addition to its main indoor exhibition space, the museum also has a separate building, the Kankei Pavilion, where it displays a collection of traditional East Asian art.

The Hara Museum ARC is found on the same grounds as the Green Bokujo near Ikaho Onsen. Its location in the spacious countryside allows for a number of permanent pieces to be placed outside around the museum grounds. One such example is a giant version of Andy Warhol's iconic Campbell's Soup can, which stands curiously amongst the trees.
