  • Interesting art work. Add this place to your itinerary if you're in the area.
  • The main building is currently closed due to renovations (until 2019) however my husband and I visited the exhibition currently being held at the annex and were not disappointed. Was a beautiful and very clean space with lovely art pieces and a wonderful exhibit displaying artworks by children in the community. It was very heartwarming to see how Kyoto values creativity and individuality of its young people and was honestly one of the hi-lights of our time in Kyoto.
