Be sure to bring some change to get a souvenir from the gashapon vending machines.

  • Just wonderful! Way way better than expected. When you are armed with Buddhism and Japanese language, characters turn into paintings and zen buddhism. English is available for all calligraphy works. 불교와 일본어에 친숙한 사람에게는 천국. 미술관 이상의 미술관.
  • Food for thoughts. Pricy alone, yet worth every penny spent. If visiting other museums as well, do consider getting the "Grutt Pass". Service was excellent.
  • A modern building was spent much time to arrive because not familiar with Tokyo. I was able to spend time, such as free from the irritating. I think I'm recommended to tired minds. Three described the Museum from 3 pm, it's able to hear, now also want to go. The next one-day would want to look carefully.
