This is a small and nicely designed art museum. Beautiful. Saw two exhibitions on different days in the same week. If you enjoy art this place is a must to visit. There is another art exhibition in the park as well. Do not miss it.
This is my favorite art museum in Tokyo, and was designed by a French architect, Le Corbusier. The site is one of trans-continental World Heritage of Le Corbusier.

We just visited the permanent collection and it was very good. Several Rodin pieces and many lesser known, but beautiful, paintings from Europe. Visited with kids and they enjoyed the collection. We spent about one-hour - but art lovers could easily spend twice as long....More

Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries.

It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping
sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
