  • It is a museum located on the Imperial Theatre. Has no permanent collection exhibitions only. And as good as empty or crowded into the city because I thought that could comfortably watch. When I went with JapanCUTE, now. With a CUTE theme could see a lot of pretty rectangular plate well. Because the design of the Edo period, still you could use normal. No signs stand out a little but more subtle lift at the entrance.

  • When entering from the first floor greets the person in charge. From the door of the elevator and the distinctive character drifts. Not according to what I hear, arranged a fan with mother-of-Pearl lacquer is a coating. Exhibition room which I fine ceramic, Nian only in separate drawers and thickly. See the moat from the window, I enjoyed Rouault collection room.

  • 3/25 (Sunday) is being held with Japan CUTE! I went to watch. It is a 9 floor building next to the Imperial Theatre walk from Yurakucho station Tokyo, located in front of the Imperial Palace. And drawing fan art museum-only elevator, is a Japanese atmosphere. Arrive on the 9th floor and subdued lighting where the tickets can be purchased at the reception desk. And widely through the exhibition room is lined with free tea machine and sofa seating area. You can admire stunning views of the city, overlooking the Imperial Palace Gardens and Mitsubishi Bldg. 1 red-brick from there you can. Is an extensive collection of Japanese staff are worth a look.

  • I quite like this building as an example of 60s Modernism with all the little details and fixtures intact. I think the galleries themselves could use a refurbishment -- maybe redone in less somnolent colors and with less linear displays to cut down on traffic jams especially when all the elderly come on weekends and holidays. There is an amazing view of the Imperial Palace and you can just relax there if you've paid admission and lucky enough to get a seat. Exhibitions focus on Japanese painting, and generally interesting EXCEPT for absolute lack of English or other languages. I saw a number of foreigners at the survey of Buddhist art -- a demanding subject that absolutely requires explanation. A shame in comparison to the efforts museums like Suntory and Nezu make in this regard.
  • Beautiful old scrolls and other paintings. Some ceramics. Three big rooms and then free tea and a view of the imperial palace. Lots of old folks excited to get in right when the museum opens.
  • Quiet space in the center of Tokyo. Museum collection includes Sengai-Osho's Zen painting
  • Hard to believe there could be a museum is on 9F of Imperial theatre building. Incredible private collection mainly Japanese and Asian. Hosts special exhibitions 5~6 times per year. Enjoy unobstructed view of imperial palace from museum's break room. Discount with Tokyo metro 24 hr pass.
  • This museaum has a great and beautiful exhibition.
