As I wandered around I came across the worst Renoir I have ever seen, closely followed by a very ordinary Manet. Of course there was a nude by Courbet, but not nearly as explicit as the one in the D'Orsay. However, my faith was restored...More

Started from private collection and some lovely pieces seldom seen by Westerners. Very pleasant venue. Bonus is that it is in Ueno Park with famous cherry blossoms

Its a relatively small gallery with a collection that is a must see if you love artists like Monet,Rodin,Renoir and Picasso. At 430 yen entry fee it was a bargain. If you are pressed for time you could see it in around an hour,we spent...More

If you are in Ueon Park and have an hour to spare, definitely visit this museum. The collection is sensitive and uplifting, with some Rodin sculptures. Note: the paintings are hung low for the short Japanese. I have no objections to that. Just be advised.

This is a perfectly sized museum I feel in order to actually appreciate everything that is on offer. Firstly the price is very resonable just 430 yen and 80 yen discount if you have the Handy tokyo guide that is available free everywhere. The collection...More

Must see if you are in the area. Nice museum, unlike all other attractions in Tokyo, this one was not overly busy. Very enjoyable and reasonably priced. I can not remember exactly but I think it was 500 yen.

It has a great collection of exhibits and lots of special collections are displayed during the year. A good place to spend a whole morning or afternoon.

The art museum has a great collection of paintings and sculptures. The route starts off with sculptures and then goes up a ramp to the story of the collection. In my opinion, one of the coolest aspects of the museum is this story. How the...More

This museum has a wonderful collection of Western Art in a beautiful building with lots of air and light. It was an afternoon well spent. It is free to those over 65.

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
