The building is pretty easy to find in Ueno park. The outside may seem dissapointing for architecture buffs, but the inside is fantastic. A good selection of work in the permanent collection and some big names in the special exhibits. Very good price concessions for...More

Lots of advertising for an El Greco exhibition, 50 paintings, which is an exhibition not to miss. Arrived over the public holiday weekend and the gallery is closed for refurb. There was nothing about the closure at tourist info and lots of people turning up...More

All that Japanese art can bog you down if your an art lover. I am not an art lover and while I enjoyed the exhibit, I found myself missing the Japanese period art.

Plenty of great western paintings and sculptures from earlier than 1900. There are many renaissance paintings and Rodin sculptures. 20th century art is found too, but not quite as much. There was a nice large Miro piece however
