  • In Japanese myth and the hustle and bustle and out from the front gate. I don't think a 10-minute walk from Omotesando station. "Maruyama okyo Expo" exhibit is impressive but not too large room, we saw a folding screen is also has become an important cultural asset is nice. Also Gardens here on site so greater than 17000 sqm and is groomed beautifully, the location. Stairs and weaker legs so thin a little hill where the views from the top, not overdo it much better I think. There were still places the autumn leaves.

  • Location (close to omote-Sando), Museum of fine arts, gardens all fashionable. Hallway leading to the entrance of the Museum of fine arts, bamboo is nice. Museum of fine arts itself is not large, but nice gardens. Matrix so Sunday was a café in the garden, but it was popular.

  • Japan garden has numerous outdoor exhibits, easy-to-understand every indoor exhibitions presence, Japan seems to be beautiful but not too wide this museum has been condensed. No wonder the high degree of satisfaction.

  • A super beautiful museum. It has a small exhibit space so you won't get tired out trying to see everything. Most importantly it has the most beautiful garden to explore. I'd go back just for the garden. You also get to see some amazingly fancy shops on the wall over from the station.
  • Go for the building itself and the garden that functions as a second open-air museum studded with sculptures. The Buddhist sculpture in the atrium is stunning, but the second floor so-so. I tend to go only when I'm really interested in a special exhibition, once or twice a year. They're getting better at English descriptions.
  • The collection here is small and for me, uninspiring. But the real draws are the building itself, whose airy architecture fuses wood, glass and fabric, and the stunning garden, which is 10x larger than the museum building. The entry fee is worth it for the garden alone, which you should plan to invest serious time in on a nice day. The cafe food is awful, so just have a drink and eat elsewhere.
  • Beautiful museum with a great garden. Totally worth a visit.
  • Impressive gardens and museum building but tiny interior! The gardens are worth the visit however those not interested in the exhibits may not be able to justify the price.
