Founded back in 1926, this museum is Japan’s very first public art museum. It features a variety of special exhibitions, thematic showcases and art masterpieces from around the world. Not only worth the visit for the art, visitors are welcome to drop by to enjoy the museum's restaurant, café and museum shop where you can pick up great souvenirs. The building is designed by renowed Japanese architect Kunio Maekawa, and is an absolute highlight for those who appreciate design.
