  • We walk in the Park, is located about 10 minutes by bicycle, sometimes watching the exhibition. Only crowded unlike the City Museum of art, even if interesting. Sometimes, restaurants in the tea is to relax with a drink in the comfortable.

  • About modern women almost women of Paris, in the Boston Museum of art, etc. on display, I mean how circuitous, pin blur. Last year, in Nerima Ward Museum of 19th-century Paris to focus on had a funny show, but Publication of Kashima, her writing is still often takes hands. Same Municipal Museum is planning force noticed differences. The admission fee was less than half the Nerima.

  • Surrounded by a beautiful park, this museum is a must visit in Spring while the cherry blossoms are in full bloom! The museum had areas under construction when I went but the rest of the museum was very interesting.
  • This is not a place to go if you're here on vacation. Its a European museum, and the entrance fee is 1500 yen. It's beautiful and quiet, but I think that very few came to Tokyo to look at European art, but if you did this place is for you.
  • Excellent art museum which sometimes hold a really interesting special exhibition, is in a big relaxing park, opens late and with a visitor's free parking. You have to get out of the car park within 15mins after the museum closing is the only minus.
  • This is a classy museum. Quite small so you don't get major exhibits. You do get more localized artists compared to other places so it's worth weeping an eye on its web site. Receptions are hosted here. Quaint cafe. It's also on the edge of Kinuta Park so it makes for a relaxed afternoon if you fancy a walk.
  • Temporarily closed for renovations as of September 2017.
