“Nice, historic collection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

I enjoyed wandering the dim, cool galleries on a hot summer day! The ancient artifacts and art pieces tell the story of Japanese history. The gift shop was a nice place to get nicer gifts for friends than you might find at most tourist locations.

“Coy Fish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2012

This is a classy, quiet place with beautiful Japanese style garden and mansion which used to belong to a Japanese aristocrat. It so nice to find peaceful, quiet and classical place like this in the middle of big city. Have nice exhibitions.

There is a large pond and the Coy fish here are so used to people, they come close to you when they hear people, expecting to be fed. When I was there, one of the visitor throw a few pieces of bread. A bunch of coy fish rushed into bread pieces, made big waves that resulted the bread pieces ended up on the shore. The next thing I saw was something I could not believe! Those coy fish started to come out from water to pursue the bread pieces!! I have never heard of or have seen fish doing such a thing!! Everyone there was cracking up and larghing real hard!!
