Take in a 20th-century Zen poet and calligrapher's work at Mitsuo Aida Museum. Aida's meditative musings on the nature of humanity and life remain highly regarded in the national culture. Absorb 450 examples of his profound calligraphy works here, and afterwards, reflect on the contemplative writings in the cafe over a coffee. Be sure to bring some change to get a souvenir from the gashapon vending machines. Mitsuo Aida Museum is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Tokyo Edition.

  • Between pole vertigo of Tokyo, is worth taking time to enter this quiet Museum, to enjoy the poetry and calligraphy of Mitsuo Aida, sitting down to enjoy a cup of coffee, buy a beautiful souvenir and enjoy the friendly staff Atencio

  • We enter the bus. Each exhibit loose so very easy to navigate. Not enough so at the time and quite a lot of pieces of the Museum and see how fairly time consuming a given tour.

  • Famous Aida, it's many great works are exhibited. 6/11 held the theme also seen flower exhibition. A fundamental part of human empathy to their fragility, weakness, others, such as written in plain language. Throughout the Museum inside cafes and souvenir shops AIDA's worldview is intact, cozy atmosphere.

  • Just wonderful! Way way better than expected. When you are armed with Buddhism and Japanese language, characters turn into paintings and zen buddhism. English is available for all calligraphy works. 불교와 일본어에 친숙한 사람에게는 천국. 미술관 이상의 미술관.
  • Food for thoughts. Pricy alone, yet worth every penny spent. If visiting other museums as well, do consider getting the "Grutt Pass". Service was excellent.

  • A modern building was spent much time to arrive because not familiar with Tokyo. I was able to spend time, such as free from the irritating. I think I'm recommended to tired minds. Three described the Museum from 3 pm, it's able to hear, now also want to go. The next one-day would want to look carefully.

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.
