  • A unique approach to defining a building, well worth the visit. Unfortunately the art, while well-executed, is not cohesive and sometimes derivative. I tried to imagine the experience of the building....  more

  • Senju-san is a gifted artist whith a rather unique style. However, most of his work is is similar, nothing that makes me want to return for a second look. The museum (gallery) was far more...

  • The entrance fee is expensive considering that you cannot even take pictures in the building. Even the architecture is fascinating, there are other worth going museums in Japan.
  • This place is very pretty and picturesque, but unfortunately you are not 'allowed' to take photos. There are security cameras and guards to make sure you don't :). The artwork is beautiful but even more so with the building. The lighting that comes through, with the minimal design, contrasted with nature is really amazing. They have booklets in all sorts of languages. I suggest you follow the order in the booklet to truly understand the pieces you are looking at. The gift shop is small, I wish they had more things to purchase related to the current exhibit. They basically had small prints and postcards. The museum itself is a little out of the way, you will need a car or a taxi. There is no direct public transit.
