    Tokyo National Museum of modern art recently seen twice. Come let's see also modern were fine, not at the exhibition, from the middle ages to Impressionism contains primarily classical art like the Courtauld Gallery in London six months ago saw that. Because it's painting of an Orthodox technique left artists interested in modern materials, even in the abstract things, not accept. Since the 20th century do not hear music but some, such as Stravinsky modern stuff, but it was painting. Wasn't the painter kaii Higashiyama has been seen recently in Tokyo, but here in Kyoto, this permanent exhibition General saw is more 飛bitsukeru. Hada Teruo saw to that. I just thought it is understood intent is that some Johns in France, but has bad taste. One well-known Japanese painters also jumped suddenly wasn't. Also, 出直sou.

    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.

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.
