The Artizon Museum in Kyobashi is a wonderful museum that houses works by famous modern painters from around the world. The collection includes Renoir's "Mlle Georgette Charpentier Seated" as well as works by Picasso, Cézanne, Van Gogh, Matisse, Klee, and other Western painters. The museum also houses a wide range of works by Japanese painters such as Ryusei Kishida, Takeji Fujishima, Tsuguharu Fujita, Shigeru Aoki, and Yuzo Saeki. Along with the National Museum of Modern Art, it is probably the best museum in Tokyo to see famous works that you can find in textbooks.
No matter how wonderful the works in the collection are, if the museum is crowded when you visit, your visit will be spoiled. When I once went to Yokohama to see the exhibition at the Czartoryski Museum, I was more impressed by the shouting of other visitors than by the works of Leonardo da Vinci, as many people crowded into the exhibition rooms. There is no need to worry about this at the Artizon Museum. Although it can get a bit crowded during special exhibitions, the rooms where the collection is displayed are always quiet. Again, the peaceful atmosphere of the exhibition room was deserted, and I could only see other visitors far beyond Seiki Kuroda's "Girl of Bréhat".
In an empty museum, you can look at the works at your own pace and to your heart's content. The Artizon Museum is definitely worth a visit, and don't worry about the crowds. I highly recommend that you visit the museum and enjoy the wonderful works of art.
