loved the flow of the exhibits and how each description had english translation. the cafe was way over priced but there was a food truck out front and a little curry stand next to the cafe that were very affordable.

Well organized, English captions on everything, and a nice selection of modern art, mostly Japanese but some famous western artists as well. Photos were allowed. My only complaint is that there's very few places to eat in the immediate vicinity, and the built- in food...More

Went there after visiting the Imperial Palsce and was not disappointed. large collection of fine art, covering artists from Japan as well as Europe. Today entrance was for free and no crowd. Finest art for free in a spacious surrounding, a perfect visit!

The national museum of modern art contained a lot of classics such as Picasso, Kandinsky, and Tanguy. I was a bit disappointed since I had expected more modern art from this century. The museum also had a really poor merchandise shop :(

The museum displays works of modern art - by Japanese artists. It is interesting and also has a nice view toward the Imperial palace and garden. I and my teenage daughter enjoyed it very much.

Our whole family really enjoyed this museum. It showcases both Japanese and western modern artists. The price is also great at 430 JPY.

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
