This is another spectacular view of the city. This building itself is beautiful with its shape from the outside.

For me the highlight was the blockbuster three paintings at the end of the museum. I've come several times to see them again as they really are stunning examples of these artists' work. But the Japanese or French paintings that I've seen on exhibition here have suffered in comparison with their greatness. Perhaps it is unfair of me to comment... More

It located on the 42th floor, before you enter the museum, you can have a bird view of Tokyo, the entrance fee costed 1000 yen for adult and free for primary n secondary school student, it's not a very big place and most probably you may spend an hour here at most

This museum is on the 42nd floor so you get some great views - especially of the 'gherkin' tower. Currently they are exhibiting some French 1900-20 impressionist paitings which are good. Then you can see the 3 famous paintings near the exit by Cezanne, Van Goch and Guagain. Not bad but small which might be a positive if you like... More

It is a place to remember a master of painter, Seiji Togo. Here he exhibited numerous works, works of Japanese artists and includes several works from abroad. Meuseum Sompo is located in the building, which is the highest magnificent building to 28 in Tokyo.

One of the Sunflowers by Van Gogh is there. The museum it's in a 42nd floor. Great view of Tokyo with Art. It's a must. Beware, take a look to a picture of the building, otherwise it's going to be difficult to know which one is since there are no signs.

I was disappointed to find that no English language explanations were offered for the current exhibition, 'Reflections of Holland: The Hague School and Barbizon'. It has become standard practice for quality museums in Japan to offer bilingual curator notes. With the Tokyo Olympics approaching, perhaps the management of Seiji Togo Memorial Sompo Japan Museum of Art might consider embracing the... More

Had a good morning looking around this museum. Views out from the gallery across Tokyo are impressive and van Goch's Sunflowers is much bigger than you expect. Not many English descriptions, except around the main pieces. Worth a visit.
