Carefully curated, comprehensive (almost too much so), informative. The light, colour and subject matters of the Breughel dynasty masters are more than refreshing. Before the era of cameras, their works capture history faithfully, and yet elevate artistically. Out of place in Japan, but like other...More

This is my favorite museum in Tokyo. They have different exhibit every now and then. It's a nice place to get away for a few hours.

Though the 40 minute wait to see this exhibit was a bit tiresome, the Van Gogh paintings, drawings and book illustrations were set off brilliantly by Japanese u-kiyoe and Japonisme art that responded to and/or inspired Van Gogh. The story of his art in Japan...More

We came for the Van Gogh exhibit. Nicely curated. Appreciate that they spread the exhibit over all three floors so that people actually went through the whole exhibit. Clearly see Van Gogh's fascination with Japan even though he himself ever visited here. When you pay...More

So on our last morning in Tokyo we strolled to the Park and enjoyed a wonderful VanGogh Exhibit, then went into the lower area to another, Modern Realism, Boy what a nice exhibit. Just check this place out, especially if you're museum people. Cheers, Salida1048

I went here to see some traditional Japanese art and was surprised at the variety of exhibits they had. I lucked upon a Van Gogh and Japanese art exhibit which was excellent. Comfortable and organized exhibits.

I was so surprised to find the Van Gogh exhibition which was absolutely amazing. The love that Van Gogh had for Japan is explored and shown. For art lovers this is a must.

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping

ホテルは上野駅にも点在してますが思い切って浅草はどうでしょう。東京都美術館へのアクセスは歩いても行けなくありません。緑豊かな所も通れます。そしてホテル近くで、美術館に行く途中合羽橋など、キッチンツールの店も面白いです。
