I've been to the Monet exhibition on Tuesday afternoon. After waiting in the line for 25 min I had to make my way to each painting through a huge crowd. Enjoyed the exhibition anyways, very rare Monet works that I've never seen.

This large museum has a permanent collections and at the time had exhibits of local art, which at the time were both traditional Japanese and modern. There were paintings, pen and ink drawings, and sculptures.

Was packed like sardines during the Monet exhibition. Although the crowd was orderly, I find it very hard to appreciate the paintings while packed shoulders to shoulders and moved along like a human conveyor belt from one painting to another painting. The audio guides were...More

The Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Art featured an exhibition of Claude Monet. I am not an expert on art by any means but his 'Water Lillies' was spectacular. We also visited the Citizen's Gallery which just showed how proud they are of their art.

Claude Monet Exhibit is breathtaking! If you like Monet's work you will love this exhibit featuring caricatures that Monet drew early on and family portraits of his wives and kids. Beautiful museum in a great and fun park.

When I visited they had an expo on Monet with paintings from the Marmottan museum. The works were well exhibited. I did not even visit the rest of the museum.

Worth a visit to see lots of good newer japanese art, but they hang the paintings side by side, so there is s lot, but you need to be able to focus on single painting at a time. Not so much joy in the art....More

This museum is just so amazing and open in some holidays. Located just next to the imperial palace here you can find a great collection not just of japanese artists but some really famous western artist as well.

See the Kubbe project. One good reason to visit this museum. Y800 for adults. Nice gift/souvenir shop as well.

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping
