A beautiful museum. Lovingly looked after and housing fine examples of Japanese design and art. The kimono are stunning and the staff were extremely welcoming

It is hard to believe that these beautiful fabrics were created by dyeing the silk. The individual kimono were marvelous, and as a related series they were magnificent. From their size, it is clear they were never meant to be worn.. My only disappointment is...More

Lots of stairs, no lift Had to take shoes off which is fine but difficult when managing a baby on your own Interesting exhibit about how to make tie died Kimonos. Small exhibit, surpised by 1,000+ Yen entry fee given size

The Itchiku Kubota Art Museum warrants its rave reviews here and elsewhere. It is a perfect delight. I just wish we had had more time, especially to watch the video about design and production of kimonos of such quality and artistic achievement. The kimonos displayed...More

Kubota truly built something that is one of a kind...perfect for an artist who created masterpieces which were one of a kind as well. The Gaudi inspired exterior architecture gives no idea of what will be inside - certainly not the ancient timbers and suspending...More

The museum is not large, but well worth the stop. The architecture is truly one of a kind as are the breathtaking kimonos. They are not displayed behind glass, so it is possible to really see all the tiny little tie dyed patterns. It was...More

While on tour in Japan, our tour company took us to Itchiku Kubota Art Museum and it is incredible. The talent to design and dye kimonos that take more than a year to finish is beyond belief in some cases. These are beautiful works and...More

This place is overrated and overpriced. Small little museum and it was closing when we were about to enter. Yet the counter person did not notify us about it. Not worth the money nor the time. Nobody is there to even bother for some feedback...More
