It is a place to remember a master of painter, Seiji Togo. Here he exhibited numerous works, works of Japanese artists and includes several works from abroad. Meuseum Sompo is located in the building, which is the highest magnificent building to 28 in Tokyo.

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.
