Time Out says

This is an alternative-history MoMA, one consisting mostly of Japanese art from the turn of the 20th century onwards. The 1969 building was designed by Yoshiro Taniguchi (father of architect Yoshio Taniguchi) and has been renovated several times. Its location next to the moat and walls of the Imperial Palace makes it a prime stop for viewing springtime cherry blossoms and autumn foliage.
