Spent a lovely morning browsing around this gallery. Featuring paintings and sculptures in about 7 different rooms. Has a nice tea room as well. Take your time to walk around and absorb the surrounding area as well.

... because I'm really reviewing the cafe inside the museum whose name I do not know. But it is a creation of master pastry chef and master chocolatier Hironobu Tsujiguchi.
