Went there but the place was closed for renovation. Could find out when it will open again. So this was a big disapointment. Check if it is open before you go there.

The place is very interesting, the architecture very peculiar, has something very contemporary and something very Japan, very traditional Japan. Exhibitions cool and the area is full of surprises.
