  • The evening before, i drove to the front of the museum to ask for a ticket, and security flew. The ticket office was until 16 o'clock, and the advance ticket was sold at a nearby convenience store, not here, so I operated the store terminal in nearby Lawson and purchased it. QR code payment and Apple Pay was not allowed for some reason, credit card passed. The next day, we left the hotel in the city to arrive at the private car park facing the sea before 9 a.m. Because it was a weekday, no one was waiting as much as I was afraid, so I was able to take the first shuttle bus to the museum. After arriving, we were in line at the front entrance until half past nine o'clock, but the people who tried to buy the ticket on the day had gathered at the ticket office in their own way, so it is recommended to queue up after buying a advance ticket. The shutter goes up a little earlier than the scheduled time, and it goes up from the front entrance of the fifth floor of the underground by a long escalator. Don't forget to start the day on the third basement floor. Immediately after that, that famous Sistine Hall welcomes you. Even in the Red and White Song Battle, Genshi Yonezu

  • I've always wanted to go, but even though I arrived early in the morning, he was a great person. I had my next plan, so I stayed for a little over three hours, but it wasn't enough. But the point to see? It was very helpful because the order of turning like was written in the pamphlet. I want to take time and go slowly again next time!

  • 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..
