Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Art

Museum in Ueno & Yanesen

This museum hosts blockbuster shows with art on loan from local and international museums (such as New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art); you could be lucky and catch the likes of Van Gogh and Renoir, or a Japanese master such as Léonard Tsuguharu Foujita. Other exhibition halls are given over to local artistic associations, whose shows include works (ceramics, calligraphy etc) from living artists.
