  • Truly wonderful. Not just the artists, but the entire experience. An easy train trip from anywhere in Tokyo. A 10 min bus ride takes you to the park entrance. I highly recommend this as an antidote to hustling, bustling Tokyo. He was way more than an artist. He was a thinker and social commentator, as well. And he opened up the creation of his art to the public. Life is art. Art is life. My feeling: this museum captures that spirit very well. I was a little disappointed that photos inside the exhibits are not allowed. The installation is almost as interesting as the artist himself, and I would love to have had pictures of that. The facility itself is beautiful, blending in with the surrounding hillsides and park. Admission is quite reasonable. There's a cafe with a decent selection of food and beverage items. It, too, is reasonably priced - at least to my American standards. And there are many very affordable books and objects in the gift shop. The park itself is not to be missed, either. A path near the museum entrance leads down onto a trail through a shady grove of trees.
