Pola Museum of Art Hakone-machi
#8 of 2,099 Museums in Kanto
There cannot be many art museums that you can see Monet, Renoir, Cezanne etc paintings next to each other and get so close you can see the paint strokes.
Sometimes I find museums overwhelming and this was just the right amount to truly appreciate what I was seeing.

Hakone Museum of Art Hakone-machi
#19 of 2,099 Museums in Kanto
Stepping into this unique museum was the perfect combination between nature (incredible gardens that I'd love to see in each of the 4 seasons!) and the history of the area.
There is also a pottery museum that housed a rare 3500bc jomon clay ornate jar that's unlike anything I've seen anywhere else, including the British national museum.
National Museum of Western Art Taito
#20 of 2,099 Museums in Kanto
It's nicely laid out and flows very nicely so whereas some museums explicitly label the different areas- here you follow the route round and enjoy the journey from biblical portraits through to modern art.

The National Art Center, Tokyo Minato
#21 of 2,099 Museums in Kanto

Mori Art Museum Minato
#22 of 2,099 Museums in Kanto
I love to visit Contemporary Art Museums, Mori is one of my favorites by far.

Tokyo National Museum The Heiseikan Uenokoen

This museum is really big and when I was there, it had a special gallery with Chinese taracotta soldiers.
This museum covers everything however, and we were fascinated to see the gaps around the two popularly covered eras filled in.

Okada Museum of Art Hakone-machi
#30 of 2,099 Museums in Kanto
The Hakone Museum of Art, sometimes called the Museum of Art (thus the mixup with the one in Atami because both are MOA-affiliated museums of art) is in Gora, Hakone.
But here, presentation is PERFECT and you can fully enjoy the visit of this Museum, including a beautiful garden and nice tea house.
