  • 400/200 adult/student yen for standard ticket. 1000/600 for standard plus temporary exhibition. 30-45 mins to browse through the normal exhibits. Interesting pieces and ideas.
  • Great visit for Kusama fans! Their’s more than just the usual pumpkins, a lot of really nice installations. Entry in also quite cheap and the parking is free.
