Kyoto is richly blessed with nature and having been the capital of Japan for more than one thousand years it has been developing an outstanding culture and has played a major role in the formation of Japanese culture. The Museum of Kyoto was opened...more
We bought tickets and nowhere was it explained that these tickets were only for the fashion design exhibit, she clearly said it was for this museum. We went into a room and it was basically an extended ad for DesIgual, really loud music and silly...More
This is not a large museum. Entry is only ¥500 because there are only 1-3 floors of exhibits depending on what you want to pay to see. That said, the historical section with audio guides in English was well chosen and lasted about twenty minutes....More
A nice little museum with pleasant staff, but very little on display - especially since most floors are now closed. There was just one floor of exhibits and another floor for a theatre, and only the titles of the exhibits were translated into English, none...More
A special art exhibition drew us to the Museum. It was worth the visit. The exhibition was excellent with an interesting grouping of works on a topic - this gave you the opportunity to consider the change in style. Apart from the special exhibition located...More
Quite large museum in the city center offers national but also international artworks to be seen by visitors. Disappointing was that there was very little information in english about national part. Exhibition by Magnum photographers was great and had well written english documentation.
I believe that those giving the museum a bad review because of the lack of English are not being fair. The museum is in Japan, after all. Coming from NY, it was not the best museum I ever went to. The fee is quite steep...More
In short; it's a complete waste of time and money (especially as it's overpriced (1400 yen in total)).
The permanent Kyoto exibit is poor, as it is very short and not well organised, but at least it has audio guides in languages other than english....More
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
