  •  Wanted to see the painting, Ito shinsui and his wife, have your watch after the cherry blossom viewing in chidorigafuchi.  A stone lantern is an indescribable beauty volunteers about the braided hair and fluffy as snow, it's amazing. Able to fondly recall the figure of a woman dressed in kimono geisha's head in the parlor at the kameido Tenjin shrine watched and passed him in the Nagamachi Samurai houses in Kanazawa.

  • We went there by a rainy afternoon and we were not disappointed. We opted for the ticket giving us access to the 2nd, 3rd, 4th floor. The explanations in English are very instructive. The Museum allows to discover Japanese artists of the 20th century. There are also some works of Western artists (Picasso, Matisse, Rousseau) but in small numbers. The connection between the Japan and West is interesting. A nice visit

  • one of a few quiet places in Tokyo. recommended for those who want to see Japanese modern art and take some nice rest from busy streets in Japan. reasonable price compared to any entertainment in Tokyo
  • A medium distance walk from the Imperial Palace. The museum has some epic pieces. It also has convenient rest room, water fountain, and lockers. Unfortunately there is only one expensive restaurant within short distance, so plan your visit accordingly.
  • Awesome. There are many art works that have captured my eyes.
  • The permanent collection shows here are a must-see, especially for fans of modern and contemporary art.
  • Differents styles of modern art by japanese
