  • I like it! The great work of the japanese people is shown here! (And yes, some european stuff, too)

  • It was a nice facility with a very small collection of books. It also had se beautiful displays of MODERN art - not contemporary art.

  • They have the Van Gogh expedition here thru 3/4 so it was nice to see a lot of his work here in one location. Way crowded when the museum opens in the morning. We're talking about at least 3-4 rows of people as you walk to view each painting so best to go in the afternoon. We came out and no line. Enjoy!!!

  • Permanent collection is one floor and generally underwhelming but includes a few interesting pieces. Disappointed at the value for money given only this one floor was open when we visited. Might be worth it when there is an interesting exhibition on too. There is a good view of the big red gate which is an added bonus.

  • Great place close to big temple. Perfect to see contrast between old and modern.
