Bridgestone Museum of Art

Museum in Marunouchi & Nihombashi

Amassed by Bridgestone founder Ishibashi Shōjiro, this is one of the best French impressionist collections you will find in Asia – although it is closed for renovations until late 2019. When it reopens, the European paintings are undoubtedly the main attraction (think Renoir, Ingres, Monet, Corot, Matisse, Picasso, Kandinsky et al).

The museum also exhibits sculpture and some works by Japanese impressionists, as well as European pieces that employ abstract or neoclassical aesthetics.
