We came for the Van Gogh exhibit. Nicely curated. Appreciate that they spread the exhibit over all three floors so that people actually went through the whole exhibit. Clearly see Van Gogh's fascination with Japan even though he himself ever visited here. When you pay...More

So on our last morning in Tokyo we strolled to the Park and enjoyed a wonderful VanGogh Exhibit, then went into the lower area to another, Modern Realism, Boy what a nice exhibit. Just check this place out, especially if you're museum people. Cheers, Salida1048

I went here to see some traditional Japanese art and was surprised at the variety of exhibits they had. I lucked upon a Van Gogh and Japanese art exhibit which was excellent. Comfortable and organized exhibits.

I was so surprised to find the Van Gogh exhibition which was absolutely amazing. The love that Van Gogh had for Japan is explored and shown. For art lovers this is a must.

We were very impressed with the location of this museum within Ueno Park which houses several other museums plus a Zoo all within a gorgeous park with temples and I'm very sure very pretty cherry blossoms and florals based on the season. The museum itself...More

Tokyo is an international city. When will they wake up to this fact and supply written and audio guides in English? Every other major museum does this.

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping
