    Went to watch yesterday, only the permanent exhibition. There is a restaurant, indoor and outdoor (covered) and where the benches and the rest was good. The permanent exhibition room "room with a view" that there. There was this House in 1945 after Japan's architecture & living related stuff seems perhaps to outdoor exhibition. The permanent exhibition 2-route was from the fourth floor, is from the fourth floor, climbing up on the stairs, I was around from the second floor. I would order if the order is better. Enjoyed in quite unconventional, such as painting titled love and bread section 3 (was checked on the Web page, but I forget seen on the floor) and Kotaro Takamura hand explanation, Kishida remarks. (When 20-somethings rokuzan Art Museum Azumino is so hot man and I did not. Nakamuraya Salon Museum interested, but not done yet) is seen works such as Georgia O'Keeffe, Paul Klee, Matisse and Murayama Sophora many Matsumoto Shunsuke, glad, but still excellent Fujita tsuguharu rooms and Yasuo Kuniyoshi. Fujita tsuguharu exhibition was held here in the past, we went. This is where first saw the war picture, Attu Island irreparable. Morrow feels like painting decorated picture frame carved out what I saw ago, but used belts and everyday, enjoy making. Yasuo Kuniyoshi's paintings seen in the Okayama Prefectural Museum of art, but after a long time you could see. Like fine photography, and translated English commentary and Japan to equally and tended to foreigners. Also, under 18 (high school and younger) is that free admission both exhibition and permanent exhibitions, saw even more for families with children. I think, I can enjoy it only at 500 yen. I think better permanent exhibition is display in the Middle, so there you are, you're in advance on the Web page. Watching the exhibition of kaii Higashiyama in the junior high school age, and rather was affected (for the first time probably went in the family exhibition). Used to go every so often if you are in the neighborhood! Is that so, went to the art museum Kumagai morikazu Kumagai morikazu exhibition will be held next time, but also would like to see, I thought.

    From the works of the famous painter of modern ages of Japan super major that I think are ingenious devices on each floor every room, such as Picasso, Cezanne, Miro, Kandinsky paintings, sculptures, films and art if you don't recognise it as enjoyable. In addition also Hirakawa moat across Palace green views from the panoramic room on the fourth floor is like in 1 painting, is great.

    After visiting a beautiful expo dedicated to Aalto in Helsinki who has traveled everywhere except in France this is the one on Japanese houses since the war to Tokyo, like, traveled to London, Rome, but not in Paris. I thought that in this country we had some architectural fiber, it is obviously not the case, so archis friends, take your plane tickets, expo closes on October 29, and is a treat of plans, models, videos of interview shifted to customers, even my kids liked it. What to say! In out a walk in the Park of the imperial palace, then a meal to the station and Tokyo half day intelligently used. Do not miss if you are on-site.

    Well organized museum, chronologically ordered starting in Meiji on the 4th floor and work the way down. 500 yen to enter, and it is conveniently located close to Takebashi station and a lot of other sightseeing spots.

    pretty cool art museum right across the street from the imperial gardens! admission is pretty cheap there, and not crowded on the weekdays, and is relatively easy to find, and a close walk from the train station.

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.
