The museum is not huge but the exhibitions are quite good. The modern Japanese art where paintings were so good they actually look like a photograph.

Went there but the place was closed for renovation. Could find out when it will open again. So this was a big disapointment. Check if it is open before you go there.

I found this museum disappointing. It is small for a major city MOMA. Given Japan's modern artists unique style I expected a much more interesting exhibition. Instead was a not very interesting story of how Japanese artists abandoned traditional silk painting to embrace and emulate...More
