Lonely Planet review

This recently renovated museum offers a striking blend of old and new: a renowned collection of Japanese, Chinese and Korean antiquities in a gallery space designed by contemporary architect Kuma Kengō. Select items from the extensive collection are displayed in manageable monthly collections.

The museum building is just the half of it. Behind the galleries is a woodsy strolling garden laced with stone paths and studded with teahouses and sculptures. There’s a glass-walled cafe (also designed by Kuma), too.
