Beautiful app!!! This is a truly wonderful app when you're interested in amazing Japanese art and especially when you're a sword lover as it's a sword lovers nirvana :-) thanks for this lovely app! Domo arigatou gozaimasu ~*
Awful While the art heritage of Japan is truly magnificent, the app is anything but. SLOW does not begin to describe it. Not only does it take over a minute to load a fragment, but the imagery isn't cached (or the cache isn't used well), so scrolling about takes as much time as showing the fragment the first time. Nearly unusable.
The National Museum of Western Art was established in April 1959.
