Fodor's Review

Founded in 1952 and moved to its present site in 1969, this was Japan's first national art museum. Twentieth- and 21st-century Japanese and Western art is featured throughout the year, but the museum tends to be rather lackadaisical about how these exhibitions are organized and presented, and the exhibitions are seldom on the cutting edge. The second through fourth floors house the permanent collection, which includes the painting, prints, and sculpture by Rousseau, Picasso,

Tsuguji Fujita, Ryuzaburo Umehara, and Taikan Yokoyama.
