3 times I have been spoilt with brilliant exhibitions on this trip to Japan. The MOMAT was no exception, the ‘Fukuyama Ichiro’ was on and it was amazing, truly going to if you can before 26th May 2019 is worth it. The museum collection currently...More

This is a very good gallery on the edge of the park at Chiyoda. Well organised and the art is displayed to maximum effect. They had a fabulous Fukuzowa exhibition on when we visited. Highly recommend.

The main collection is arranged chronologically, starting at the top floor. Many beautiful classic and modern works you will never have seen before. The cards in the gift shop are also excellent!

The collection is small and limited but with some amazing artwork. Same as other national museums, it’s kind of lifeless. Staff very friendly. Don’t miss the terrace with the spectacular view of the garden.

We only got to see the graduating student exhibition and we had a brilliant time. Such talent! The museum shop is also worth a look. No entry fee.

Although being the national modern art museum, there were not a lot of great works for viewing. About 200 pieces of permanent collection were in display, mostly from 1900 -1960's. There was no explanation of each piece. Pretty dry, not informative!

The National Museum of Modern Art is a great museum with a collection of modern Japanese art. It is worth checking out when you are in Tokyo.

Japan has been on the cutting edge of modern art with the films of Ozu, Miyazaki and Korosawa and even going as far back as Hiroshigi who influenced some of Europe's most famous artists like van Gogh and Monet. The National Museum of Modern Art...More

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
