What people are saying:

A very important stop for the Kyoto Museum. Opposite the famous Sanjusangendo, I was extremely impressed. The current pavilion is a new building, and the old site is next to it. The exhibits inside are dizzying. Moreover, the design of the exhibition hall is exquisite, the layout structure is reasonable, and the overall look and feel is very comfortable.
