Museums and galleries closing because of Coronavirus

Not sure if this helps anyone - but I've been debating for a few days about whether or not to postpone by upcoming trip on Saturday. What finally decided me was the news that some of the galleries and museums I'd planned to visit were being closed until at least mid-March. (See Time Out for Tokyo for example).

Japanese Medical Association has designated March as the month to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infections and recommended cancellations of many events and closure of attractions. They also recommended closure of all public elementary and middle schools until the spring break, which means all schools are closed until the second week of April.
