  • We visited Golden in 2017. Students, staff and little was. Compared to takebashi Tokyo National Modern Art Museum permanent exhibits is pretty poor, and the disappointment. When I visited the modern Buddhist painting exhibition held at the exhibition, you'll enjoy. Sightseeing in Kyoto in the grammar makes it also good I think. Heian Jingu Shrine is nearby.

  • When such as Renoir, Picasso, Matisse, I visited in the collection here and surprisingly it is rude, but was displayed in the permanent exhibition. Is that the answer will be considered permanent exhibitions are exhibited throughout the year does not, during the bubble period Japan Museum of art works fine come seem so you may find other treasures. A special exhibition and compare them to be good.

  • Van Cleef & Arpels exhibition went all the way. Numerous works like seeing you in life that can't be seen thought that melts in your mouth. More exhibition also exhibited piece emerges in the dark, was short of overwhelming. It was want to see about 5 times if you live near.

  • 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.
