    Free admission so not expect too much, but I visited during our spectacular. Excavation of Paleolithic displays haniwa, mounds, and Edo period torture instruments, such as a number of the other.

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.
