Beautiful architecture. Serene and peaceful atmosphere. Exhibitions may not be attractive for non japanese speakers

For non-Japanese speakers, this museum is only interesting for the architecture of Tadao Ando. We walked through the path, took a couple of pictures of the building and went right to Boukeitei, the adjacent traditional house which is free to visit.

No translations are available, so this museum is a complete waste of time for non-Japanese speaking tourists. The only interesting exhibit I saw was the temporary special exhibition, which requires a separate ticket. There’s a small Japanese-style home, but it’s not worth a trip. Worst of all, the building itself looks like a prison. (July 2019)

Beautiful architecture! But the display is only in Japanese.

A Tadao Ando experience with a beautiful accessible Japanese private garden annexed to the Museum.
