As the largest museum that focuses on Western masterpieces in Tokyo, the National Museum of Western Art can be quite appealing. A total of 5500 works are exhibited, including valuable pieces from the 14th to 20th centuries. Occasionally, you may bump into popular artists when the gallery invites them to talk. Special exhibitions are held on a seasonal basis, such as the upcoming Sacred and Secular: Israhel van Meckenem & Early German Engraving this summer.
