    It is a museum located in the Tokyo International Forum. Published by Tokyo Metropolitan Foundation for history and culture "round up and path" of preferential benefit, the entry was. Aida works using plain language, written in a distinctive font is lined up with. Look at just a few works are placed the photo taking booth because the copyright is still alive and has become a kind of business such as calendars and posters is prohibited. Is a little disappointing, but not deal with the matter of... How to duplicate a photo shoot also cannot be written in heaps, but learned about copyright and reproduction rights are?.

    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.
