One of the Sunflowers by Van Gogh is there. The museum it's in a 42nd floor. Great view of Tokyo with Art. It's a must. Beware, take a look to a picture of the building, otherwise it's going to be difficult to know which one is since there are no signs.

I was disappointed to find that no English language explanations were offered for the current exhibition, 'Reflections of Holland: The Hague School and Barbizon'. It has become standard practice for quality museums in Japan to offer bilingual curator notes. With the Tokyo Olympics approaching, perhaps the management of Seiji Togo Memorial Sompo Japan Museum of Art might consider embracing the... More

Had a good morning looking around this museum. Views out from the gallery across Tokyo are impressive and van Goch's Sunflowers is much bigger than you expect. Not many English descriptions, except around the main pieces. Worth a visit.

500 yen for the short walk-through and lack of variety in art styles was a bit pricy. But 1000 yen for a date is not bad. Will go again when the art changes which is about every month.

While my friend was busy shopping i decided to go have a look at this Museum and came out completely satisfied. It is not a large museum but impeccably kept and the view from the 42nd floor where it is located is nothing short of breathtaking. Another plus is you get to see Van Gogh's famous 'Sunflowers'.

Excellent museum on the 42nd floor (I think). As you enter there are amazing views of Shinjuku and Tokyo, including a close-up of the Cocoon building. The museum has current exhibitions, a permanent collection, and ends with Van Gogh's sunflowers.

Such a wonderful surprise, am extremely glad I went, more for the Seiji Togo and Japanese art than for Van Gogh's Sunflowers. Definitely worth taking some time to visit.

This gallery is special for a few reasons: it's got van Gogh's Sunflowers (a painting I don't like very much myself, but even if it's not to your tastes, it has the cultural importance of being the painting that was famously purchased by a Japanese corporation for a mindbendingly large amount of money), and it's on the 42nd storey of...
