First room is mostly European artists, some very famous. There were some works I'd not seen before. 2nd room more Japanese artists. Not huge but ok for entrance fee of ¥300 for permanent collection. Didn't see temporary as it was Realism.

On the 2nd floor, there were some works of western and Japanese artists. Other halls were temporary exhibitions. There's almost no description in English. I wish they add for foreign visitors. About one hour was enough to see all.

Lovely gallery - the small collection of impressionist paintings makes it much easier to see the differences and for me, the Dali is to die for. Cafe is very small but perfectly formed.

This small museum hosts a small but nice permanent collection of paintings and sculptures from Europe and Japan. The European collection focuses on the modern period, starting from Impressionism all the way to pop art. Pieces on display are few, but the major artists are...More
