The Van Gogh and Gauguin exhibit is worth the visit. A collection of 65 pieces. However, it ends in December 2016. The museum is rather small. I was not able to go to the National Museum though. Compared to the Art museums in New York,...More

You can see exhibition of western art of great artists like Van Gough or Matisse in this place without visitting Europe. Of course the collection is not that grand as those in European museum.

The location is close to Tokyo National Museum, the national museum of western arts. You may visit all of three museums with one full day. Specially, for people over 65 they have senior discount.

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
