The museum was founded by Yamazaki-Mazak Corp. that's a machine tool builder. Although when I go abroad I sometimes visit museums, I hardly go to museums in Japan. I knew the existence but I wasn't interested in that so much. One day my wife and I visited there, because we had itchy feet and the museum was featured on an... More

Impressionist paintings were on exhibit during our visit. It was well curated and more importantly, audio guides were available in BOTH Nihongo and English. The museum's permanent collection of furniture and japonisme-inspired French glasswork is inspiring!

Step from the subway, go to the exit marked Yamazaki Mazak Art Museum, and enter a bright, beautiful, polished atrium which leads to the Yamazaki Building. Gallery reception is elegant, and I mean the people welcome you with warm elegance. You buy your ticket, a guide gives you the listening device and shows you how to use it, and then... More

While looking for local museum ideas (I'd already visited the Nagoya / Boston Museum of Fine Arts twice), I read about Yamazaki Mazak's collection of Art Nouveau glassware and was hooked.
