  • Recently talking about Nagano from the Yayoi Kusama's giant sculpture standing in the entrance of the building and the entrance ago mood improves. Inside has spacious and divided permanent exhibitions and events exhibitions, is very easy to watch. Cafe and restaurant is located on the first floor, is a clean overlooking the courtyard. Outlets, such as postcards or replica piece was selling things.

  • Modern building with a nice permanent collection of Yayoy Kusama. We loved the temporary exhibition of paintings by elderly artists. Great gift shop as well.
  • Awesome little museum. The Kusama exhibits were awesome, especially since nobody was really around to break the atmosphere.
  • The permanent Kusama Yayoi exhibition is excellent.
  • Small museum with and Hall of Yayoi Kusama
  • Yayoi Kusama room is the best. Worth come by.

Where to stay in Matsumoto

Matsumoto strikes a balance between the old and the new in its accommodations, as it does with most other aspects of its urban design and culture. The area directly around the main train station houses many of the newer options in town, including some large hotels, both basic and luxury, and a couple of smaller, family-run options. The more historic area north of here has hotels and "ryokan" (guesthouses) with a little more history and character, and with the main attractions of the old town on their doorsteps. The surrounding rural area features a number of hotels with "onsen" (traditional Japanese spas) and campsites.
