Couldn’t really understand why this was 3300 JPY for the entrance, even though I appreciate the fact there is a lot of work that has gone in to recreating all of the art on display in this museum... more »
Though these are reproductions, nonetheless a very comprehensive collection of some of the most well known western master pieces spanning from Roman (Pompeii) till modern (Munch, Klimt, Picasso) times. An excellent opportunity to see beautiful art at (larger than) life size, up close with no crowds. The layout and display are well planned and definitely enhancing the experience. There are good explanations, though often only in Japanese. A two hours tour led by an experienced guide is free, but again only in Japanese. Spending nearly a whole day can be a bit heavy. But the museum restaurant was quite good quality and not expensive.
Great building with nice view but every artworks there are not original. I might be wrong, but paintings are printed and baked on tiles or something..
