Fabulous setting in nature. The tunnel to the museum is awesome. The permanent collection is amazing. There are several pieces from Ghandara. The Persian section is excellent. The architecture by I.M. Pei alone is worth the visit. The Egyptian section is small but pieces are...More

The bus trip to the Miho Museum from Kyoto took about 1 hour since the site was a bit far from the city. However, it was well worth the trip. From the gate, to the tunnel, to the bridge, to the entrance, everything was beautiful....More

This place and its story is amazing. We came during colorful autumn and the special 20 year anniversary exhibition. You don't know what to admire more, the architecture or the galleries. Both fabulous. To get there you take a train from Kyoto station to Ishimaya...More

Whether this museum is worth the drive is going to be a personal choice. The building and entry are stunning, by I.m. Pei. The collection is small but very impressive. You could see the entire museum in two hours. We did not have a choice...More

We mainly visited for the building and entry, but were surprised that it actually had a good collection. The permanent exhibition was okay, but we especially liked the temporary one. Only nitpick is that the bus to the train is extremely crowded and only goes...More

Hi Ann Miho museum is really easy to get to by public transportation: JR train to Ishiyama and then Teisan bus line straight to Miho. If you still need a privet driver - any taxi driver will love to help you.
