Enjoyable small museum in three parts: - ancient art (3000 BC to 19th century) - modern art - changing exhibitions - currently about Godzilla The modern art contrasts Japanese modern art with European art. This makes for interesting juxtapositions. A Miro, a Dali, several Chagalls...More

Not only will you find yourself wandering aimlessly to find the art in this museum, but once you do find it, you will not be impressed. There's a nice Dali and a few other great modern pieces, and some really nice 19th century Japanese Impressionists,...More

This museum is within Ohori Park, a 10-minute walk from the Ohorikoen station. For the price of the entrance fee, this museum is well worth the visit and is very well curated. Amazing works by Dali, Basquiat, Rothko, Warhol, Yayoi Kusama etc. No photos allowed...More

Even if you go in with nothing, you will get out with something. Not literally. Just enjoy and stroll through "art" as they are for your pleasure:)

We popped in here when we were visiting the park. The building itself was very cool with cool 70s furniture. Checked out the special exhibitions (you have to pay for tickets) - it was mixed abilities I would say, interesting all the same.
