I was very lucky meeting a staff member who showed me the way and told me about audio in English which is rare to find in the museums in Japan. The audio in English deepens my visit to the museum and my understanding on the pieces of the collection. This is one of my best visit to art museums/galleries in... More

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. The museum is directly connected to the Shinsakae-machi station on the Nagoya Subway Higashiyama Line. I've visited numerous Art Nouveau museums abroad, and the Yamazaki Mazak's collection of works... More
