This 3 storey museum located next to Irefuneyama Park houses over 800 works from Japan and overseas. Notable in the permanent collection are Renoir’s Girl with a straw hat and a version of Antoine Bourdelle’s sculpture Hercules the Archer. The red brick building with its red brick exterior and sweeping staircase in inside is quite impressive, and the small garden in front of the entrance is lovely. The leafy approach to the museum is lined with some “interesting” sculptures.
