Such a wonderful surprise, am extremely glad I went, more for the Seiji Togo and Japanese art than for Van Gogh's Sunflowers. Definitely worth taking some time to visit.

This gallery is special for a few reasons: it's got van Gogh's Sunflowers (a painting I don't like very much myself, but even if it's not to your tastes, it has the cultural importance of being the painting that was famously purchased by a Japanese corporation for a mindbendingly large amount of money), and it's on the 42nd storey of a skyscraper, which means that even if you don't like any of the art on the walls, you can look out and get a great view of Shinjuku and the rest of the metropolis spreading out beneath you.

While we visited they had a fairly interesting collection of paintings owned by, or depicting events from the history of, the Japanese Red Cross; in total, there must have been no more than 30 or so pieces displayed, but each is given enough space and good lighting that you can appreciate them. No photography is allowed in the gallery, although you are not prohibited from taking pictures of the view of the city outside.
