  • Renoir Moulin-de-la Garrett in the Kansai region, the went on a trip to Tokyo. Walked, had lunch in Roppongi Hills, the hills a little harsh. Popular Renoir was crowded even on Monday. Listen to this museum is closed Tuesday so open on Monday. It is also because it is open Fridays from 20:00 off the beaten path. Stand up sit down once a Chair on the floor on the first floor, new building of the Museum of fine arts, ad nauseam and easy sitting and was tired.

  • While not end exhibition was so last-minute we went to Salvador Dali exhibition. Museum of fine arts itself is wide, accessible direct from the Metro station. The room was crowded. 外senai exhibition. That takes a little time from Roppongi Station can be reached.

  • The National Arts Centre Tokyo building is a stunning architectural design by Kisho Kurokawa and is the perfect setting for viewing the constantly changing exhibits at NACT. Wide open spaces, perfect light and calm atmosphere make this place a joy to visit when in Tokyo. It's free to enter the building but you will have to pay for the exhibitions. Highly recommended.
  • This is a beautiful building and area. I have visited on various occasions, the last being to the Issey Miyake design exhibition. He's one of my favorite designers so this was awesome to get to see. The exhibitions are well laid out, there's a cafeteria and gift shop and everyone is super helpful.
  • with 21_21 design sight and mori art museum, this place make the triangle of inspiration in this area. they plan very meaningful exhibitions for every level of visitors. also museum shop is really nice to enjoy and to take cool stuffs to remember tokyo moments.
  • Beautiful building. Horrible exhibition. The 101 nika exhibition is one of the worst ive ever been to.
  • Excellent access by subway via Nogizaka Stn. Beautiful building in a lovely park setting, with universal design and access. Decent cafe. Renoir!!! Now showing until 8/22. Be sure to go if you are a fan of his! Admission is a bit pricey, but so worth it for excellent English signage. Audio guides are also available for ¥550, and they help enhance the experience even more, so splurge on them if you like. Overall, this was the highlight of my 4-day trip to Tokyo & Tsukuba!
