  • This is the biggest rip-off. They list a huge inventory of Modern Art however, only one small floor is actually on display and we were in and out within 20 minutes. It's not worth the effort and a jok...  more »
  • The museum was very enjoyable, it is not too big, and the art works were interesting and intriguing.  more »
  • Kansai Museum round out and there is a path and attracted 10% off restaurant went. By chance on the last, was held round-table kinutani and architect Tadao Ando on the floor on the first floor. Special exhibitions are on display by age, theme, there was spectacular. Nice photo shoot OK room. Those exhibitions is not known to the general public, and hard to understand, and I think viewers receive.

  • Most temporary exhibitions are just great. Not many English explanations though...
  • This modern art museum hosts 4~6 special exhibitions per year. Focus is often on western Japanese artists.
  • Visited last week and saw the excellent Mary Cassat retrospective, but the permanent collection feels too varied in its presentation.
  • Politely charged us full admission price at the door then told us inside that the exhibition hall was closed and only the permanent collection was open. I would have appreciated knowing this prior to paying.
  • Very nice and full of interesting exhibit

Where to stay in Kyoto

Kyoto spoils visitors for choice when it comes to good accommodations, offering everything from traditional ryokans to luxury Western-style hotels. In a city used to receiving foreign travelers, you'll find that most establishments know exactly what to offer tourists and how to help newcomers to the area. To avoid paying premium prices during the cherry blossom season, consider staying in Osaka, located just a 30-minute train ride away. If you must stay in Kyoto itself, keep in mind that centrally located hotels charge more than those in the outer neighborhoods.
