The grounds are a beautiful park, with a pond with swans. The cherry blossoms were ending, except for the double blossom cherry tree. I will add a review of the on-site cafe. They served a choice of several pasta dishes - we each ordered a unique one- shrimp, or tomato, or tuna. Nice portion. The appetizer and the dessert were miniature portions - very elegant style on a big plate - like a typical French-style Japanese presentation. We ate in the windowed room overlooking the grounds and pond. A more peaceful view during lunch would be hard to find. It was a gorgeous day outside and made for such a picturesque backdrop.

The museum has a lot of famous arts: Renoir, Rodin, Picasso and other famous modern artists. There are some Japanese arts too.

The museum has a big Japanese garden and a restaurant in annex building. If you just walk around the garden or come to annex building, you don't need museum ticket. It is free.

To go to the museum, get on the free shuttle bus from JR or Keisei Sakura station. The bus comes every hour. There is a direct bus from Tokyo station but it is only morning and evening.

The Kawamura Kinen Museum is a museum with a large, beautiful garden. I went there to see an exhibition featuring photographs of Japanese people, taken by a british photographer over 150 years ago. The pictures were really clear, so I really enjoyed it. It was like I could hear the voices of the samurai in the pictures.
The museum also had an exhibition of famous paintings from artists like Magritte, Chagall, Rothko, as well as many other Japanese and non-Japanese artists. Those artists are on parmanent display, so you can see their works any day except Monday.
Walking on a pathway in the garden was also really nice and relaxing. Although the museum is located in a really rural area, it's worth visiting.

Beautiful museum in great surroundings
I visited the museum to check the Leonard Foujita exhibition which is impressive and beautifully curated
The museum has some contemporary western art ( not huge amounts, very minimal, Japanese style) but it was worth the trip for the temporary exhibition. Beautiful park and restaurant

We visited this museum after seeing a poster at the Sakura rail station, and were pleasantly surprised to see the attractive building and grounds, not to mention the nice collection of mainly 20th century European and American art.

We enjoyed the floral art display in May. We are not great lovers of modern art which this museum does have. We really enjoyed walking the grounds and getting a sorbert at the cafe.
