  • It is a good location about a 15-minute walk from Matsumoto Station. It faces the main street in front of the station and can be visited as part of sightseeing. You can enjoy various spots such as shopping center, Aatanomori Park, Matsumoto Castle, etc. if you go a little.

  • I was doing a special exhibition of Japanese paintings from the Shinano Museum of Art and Matsumoto City Museum of Art. In addition to the enhancement of the exhibition, there are also very many permanent exhibitions of works by Yayoi Kusama, who is associated with the area, as well as painters and sculptors. I think that the price is cheap compared with the house of other cities. The garden is beautiful and the bus stop is close. The way I look at Yayoi Kusama's work has changed.

  • 400/200 adult/student yen for standard ticket. 1000/600 for standard plus temporary exhibition. 30-45 mins to browse through the normal exhibits. Interesting pieces and ideas.
  • Great visit for Kusama fans! Their’s more than just the usual pumpkins, a lot of really nice installations. Entry in also quite cheap and the parking is free.
