*FULL 60min since I came in late. But ended up being not bad, enough time to enjoy the entire museum.
It was our second time seeing some of her giant square-sized art works since we went to the big exhibition of hers at the National Art Center of Tokyo in Roppongi. But each peace looked familiar yet different with the placement, lighting, and also with people who truly enjoyed her work around. Right when we got to the museum top, we had a nice guide from one of the visitor who truly loved her art work and gave us great tips as well in checking out the place and to enjoy Yayoi Kusama's art works here to the fullest. Hope the Instastory collage will guide others through as well :) If you can get the ticket, it's definitely a nice visit.
