  • I stopped by with the intention of Dazaifu tourist watching the building, just may be worth. It is a wonderful building. Just the birds and beasts caricature exhibition had visited fun. Thought I heard weekday admission takes 20 minutes and I was surprised, but Saturday and Sunday waiting for three hours and said, I was lucky. I want to come again since the spectacular permanent, but have time to squeeze.

  • This is a must see Japanese museum. The quality of the art collection is first rate and includes art from a number of Asian countries. The museum itself is stunning and easy to visit. You can easily spend three hours enjoying the beautiful collections exhibited. The museum also has special exhibits but reservations are usually necessary and may still involve quite a lengthy waiting in line.
  • Wonderful setting for this amazing museum with plenty of English including an audio guide. Great train trip from Fukuoka as well.
  • The museum has an elegant and modern building that exemplifies the merger between history and art. A must see for every fan of history!
  • A very modern design museum built on the hill. The exhibition is mainly about how Japanese is evolved and how the culture is influenced by China and West Asia. They have English guide so it is a good place to visit if you are in 太宰府
