Beautifully located. Ando (the architect) is Japan's best and most brilliant. The art inside is the bonus. They usually have excellent special exhibitions. I have been three times now and never been disappointed. Don't catch a taxi there. Just check out the local JRail. It...More

I'm so glad we decided to visit! It was a bit of a walk from the train station, but totally worth it. The price was only $4.50 for a college student ($5.50 for adults) and we got to see some beautiful pieces. None of the...More

We walked over to the Art Museum along the quay and from the waterfront walked around the building to get to the entrance. The permanent collection entrance fee is a bargain (300Yen, about 2,5Euro). Fortunately we also took the special exhibition access which was a...More

The art museum itself is a nice building to explore. Lots of stairs leading to different view points of the harbour; austere concrete structure. The permanent collection consisted of many wood-cut prints depicting fantastical fables of the west. There was a collection of classical and...More

The architecture of this gallery, by reknowned architect Tadao Ando, is an artwork in itself and for many will be a sufficient drawcard alone. The gallery includes a small but substantial and informative exhibition on Ando, concentrating principally on nearby works. Make sure you walk...More

on the riverside and around the museum are a number of fantastic scultures to visit in free access without any entrance fee - don't miss the gigantic steel girl on the riverfront. the whole building is worth a visit even without the expositions.
