Art Lover's Guide to Japanese Museums is outstanding




The museums of Japan feature rich collections and excellent exhibitions in world-class galleries. Yet they can be difficult to navigate without first-hand knowledge. The Art Lover’s Guide to Japanese Museums acts as a personal guide, introducing readers to some of the most distinctive and inspiring museums in the country.


In-depth information is given about each listed venue, including the stories behind their creation, and other things to see and do near the museum. From magnificent traditional arts to fascinating artist’s houses and from sleek contemporary museums to idiosyncratic galleries, museums are the perfect gateway to discover Japan’s culture both past and present.


Beautifully produced and laid out in an easy and comprehensive manner, Sophie Richard’s book offers a stimulating and erudite guide to the 120 art museums in the country. Even if you thought you were not interested in the subject, this book will make you want to get on a plane and visit these fantastic museums for yourself. Highly recommended.
