First room is mostly European artists, some very famous. There were some works I'd not seen before. 2nd room more Japanese artists. Not huge but ok for entrance fee of ¥300 for permanent collection. Didn't see temporary as it was Realism.

On the 2nd floor, there were some works of western and Japanese artists. Other halls were temporary exhibitions. There's almost no description in English. I wish they add for foreign visitors. About one hour was enough to see all.
