  • The Ryukoku Museum is located opposite Nishi Honganji Temple and has several special exhibitions and special exhibitions a year. If you go to Nishi Honganji Temple, please stop by.

  • ... however, despite being a museum of a university, it is not an indication in English of the works or in the rooms. Too bad! Still beautiful: I saw an exhibition on Zen Buddhism but I think that's the theme of all the exhibitions anyway because the museum is in front of a Zen temple that encompasses the University linked to the museum. Little-publicized museum on the guides that in my opinion absolutely worth a visit.

  • Beautiful building. However, as a museum it is lacking a bit of natural light and space. Exhibitions tend to be a bit boring in this classical setup. Edit: Museum cafe is a dissapointment. All in all I'd give this place a pass.
  • Loved the animations and drawings. However it would be nice to have a second language translation e.g. English -since the place is visited by foreigners
