  • My reason for coming here was because of the museum being designed by Kengo Kuma. This is a very nice looking museum and small, also has a nice garden in the back for you to walk around. If you see a nice exhibit they will have here be sure to visit, it's a nice place, also the staff was pretty friendly.
  • Medium size museum with beautiful Japanese garden in the back. Garden has many antique statues and stone lanterns, some are from the 16th century. There is a small cafe in the upper part of the garden.
  • The most stylish, exquisite, calm gallery I've visited. And the garden is wonderful. Large, lots of winding paths, beautiful pond, and statues and stupas at every turn.
  • Traditional Japanese art exhibition. Entrance fee is ¥1,000 for adult. The garden is superb!
  • Superb moment of peace, gorgeous gardens and nice journey across Japanese tales...
