We did not know about this museum until we saw posters for the Kusama exhibit there posted around the Gion neighborhood. What a lovely place! First: the building is a historic 100-year-old traditional structure with sliding screens and tatami mats (no shoes allowed). There are...More

I had wanted to go to her new eponymous museum in Tokyo but tickets were sold out through August. I was delighted to read about this expanded exhibition at a private museum in Kyoto, running through Feb 2019. Tickets are ¥1500 per person (around $15),...More

The only place we visited that had fairly aggressive touts giving you fliers and trying to hustle you into the building. Not a good sign. Did not experience any of the shows. Might be good but the external atmosphere said, "Beware." At least to us....More

If you are a Yayoi Kusama fan, this museum is a can’t miss. It is the largest private collection of Yayoi’s work and includes some of her most iconic works.

I visited a fantastic exhibition of Yayoi Kusama on July, like no other I've ever seen. Very well curated. Plus, the gardens of the museum are beautiful.

Not only do I love Yayoi Kusama's incredible work but seeing her work in a Japanese museum, without your shoes was an experience I never thought I'd live. There's also a beautiful meditation hall, and a garden with Koi you can explore by yourself. It's...More

Located right across from Gion Corner, this recently-opened museum is a real treat for culture buffs! Let's begin with the building: traditional Japanese style complete with tatami mats (shoes off at the door please!), lots of wooden beams and a gorgeous back garden. These features...More

Gion
Gion is Kyoto's famed Geisha District (called "Geiko"
in Kyoto). Though Gion's many tea houses and
entertainment restaurants are closed to foreigners,
Geiko and Maiko in their traditional makeup with
gilded hair in full kimono can be seen drifting the
streets on their way to and from work, where they fan
dance, sing, and play instruments for customers. Gion
lights up at night, when the ancient-looking streets
