  • Choose the time zone, distance from the train station so small museums and slowly, watching exhibits closely. Painting is recommended especially is a favorite. Why wouldn't it feel after watching the coffee slowly and fulfilling.

  • This gallery is not as cheap as state museums, but it has a large collection of Japanese paintings of 19-20 centuries. It's worth seeing every time they change the exhibition. There is a small museum shop and a cafe where you can eat seasonal noodles and a small Japanese-style cake inspired by the season or even by a painting from the exhibition.
  • Exemplary exhibit: display & curation (excellent museum store)
  • Very nice museum with interesting exhibitions. I recommend the café. They serve sets like matcha and wagashi for around 1000 yen.
  • This museum can really open one's eyes to the diversity of nihonga, or modern Japanese-style painting. They prepare free English pamphlets for their changing exhibits too. The exhibition space is small and can quickly become crowded on Sundays and holidays, plus it is a tad expensive at 1200 yen. The cafe has matcha green tea and Japanese sweets specially created to match works in the exhibits, so can make for an interesting rest stop.
  • This is the only museum I had time to visit in Tokyo, we arrived just an hour before closing time. But "luckily" the museum is not too big, so you should not plan to spend hours there. That said I always was a great fan of Japanese watercolor paintings, and this little gem made me as happy as expected. The staff is superkind (as in every service in Japan), the museum shop has some interesting stuff.
