  • This is the great Imperial Palace Gardens spread out before one's eyes after watching the exhibition because it is on a high floor of Idemitsu. So comfortable chairs and sleep is best.

  • To see the exhibition of Edo rimpa, I went for the first time. From Hibiya subway station, and at the period end, it was pretty crowded. But I could watch like in the hotel's spacious, very smoothly. Also there is a chance, I want to go.

  • Visited the Museum exhibition purposes than I went thought closer to read the works of the man who was called pirate momota Naoki said. Imperial Theater building 4F that Idemitsu Kosan-there are places you can see Imperial Palace at 9 F 8 F, Idemitsu Museum of arts. Exhibition go changing theme every month. From what was to what I thought. If I could I want, Idemitsu's corner.

  • I quite like this building as an example of 60s Modernism with all the little details and fixtures intact. I think the galleries themselves could use a refurbishment -- maybe redone in less somnolent colors and with less linear displays to cut down on traffic jams especially when all the elderly come on weekends and holidays. There is an amazing view of the Imperial Palace and you can just relax there if you've paid admission and lucky enough to get a seat. Exhibitions focus on Japanese painting, and generally interesting EXCEPT for absolute lack of English or other languages. I saw a number of foreigners at the survey of Buddhist art -- a demanding subject that absolutely requires explanation. A shame in comparison to the efforts museums like Suntory and Nezu make in this regard.
  • Beautiful old scrolls and other paintings. Some ceramics. Three big rooms and then free tea and a view of the imperial palace. Lots of old folks excited to get in right when the museum opens.
  • Quiet space in the center of Tokyo. Museum collection includes Sengai-Osho's Zen painting
  • Hard to believe there could be a museum is on 9F of Imperial theatre building. Incredible private collection mainly Japanese and Asian. Hosts special exhibitions 5~6 times per year. Enjoy unobstructed view of imperial palace from museum's break room. Discount with Tokyo metro 24 hr pass.
  • This museaum has a great and beautiful exhibition.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
