Missing those Western artists, culture lovers? Along with some Japanese works, you can get your “fix” here. Perfect for a rainy day, too. Great selection of postcards in gift shop. We saw everything in 1.5 hours, but we were moving at a quicker pace than...More

We got here using our Hakone Free Passes with some help from a friendly bus driver. It’s an interesting collection and we thought it worth the detour. We also had an excellent lunch ordering some set menus.

Perhaps I had too high of expectations after all the good reviews, but maybe I just didn’t appreciate the current special exhibit of glassware. For me, it was not worth the trip out, even though the building itself was quite nice.

Although we didn't plan a visit to this museum, we ended up here on a rainy day. The museum is easy to reach by bus and is located in a beautiful environment. The architecture of the museum is beautiful and perfectly blends in the environment....More

There cannot be many art museums that you can see Monet, Renoir, Cezanne etc paintings next to each other and get so close you can see the paint strokes. Truly amazing. A little pricey however worth the visit.
