There are a few nice collections in this museum and also the garden was very nice. Do not miss the small open space when you walked up the museum, the maple trees must be attractive when it is in autumn with red leaves. Claude Monet...More

A break-stop of our way from Kansai airport to The Ritz-Carlton Kyoto. Admire the architectural, beautiful park & works of Claude Monet. Get the wine cake, it's oishii.

First things first. If you're tired, or it's hot, or you just don't like climbing steep hills, take the free shuttle bus provided by the museum from the rail station. It picks up right outside the main entry, and will haul you, free of charge,...More

The museum, the former mansion of a wealthy Japanese brewer, is a small gem. The location on a wooded hillside, surrounded by gardens both traditional and western, is lovely in its own right. The location is near two major train line stations, so access is...More

Want to get out of all the hubbub of Kyoto for a few hours? Head out for 15 minutes to this mountain retreat of a museum. It's fantastic if you like pottery, but you'll also be treated to a few choice French Impressionists, including two...More

The main attraction of this museum is an insight into the impact of the British Arts and Crafts movement on early 20th century Japan. A fairly esoteric subject of course, so if you're not interested the stop here. If this is your thing, the house...More

The current special exhibit is about woodblock prints of orchids, and although interesting, it is overdone. Most of the permanent collection has been put away to make room for this special exhibit, which means room after room of orchids, which gets to be too much....More

Other reviewers here on Trip Advisor seem unaware of the significance of this out-of-the -way little gem. If you are either curious about or aware of the Mingei movement or its principal founders, Soetsu Yanagi, Shoji Hamada, Kawai Kanjiro, Bernard Leach and others and of...More

Do not waste your time or money (700 yen) going to this small, terrible museum. The exhibit we saw on March 4, 2010, "Lovely Country Life" was incoherent and pointless and was merely a collection of objects placed in a house. It was also very...More
