  • But will not know you are doing the exhibition of Marcel Duchamp, visited the gallery. It was interesting, but normally works of Duchamp exhibited would be good. My impression is that Japan art commentary also was not.

  • If you want to understand the history and culture of Japan you have to visit the National Museum. Displays the history of Japan through their works of art and pieces of craft, samurai armor, sculptures, masks, etc... All perfectly explained in several languages. It is worth investing a few hours during his visit. That is do not pass you visit the indoor garden.
