  • History of Japan as Edo period from the Paleolithic era to the notice. Have a theme at every booth. The booth by the curator's Office. And so do not wander aimlessly, IC cards hanging Luc exhibits contained in the glass, but was noted. Be careful to not hit glass here. It is a rare place to take pictures. To go-not "yamakasa" escalators and lobby?? I took.

  • If you want to know the culture of a country he should visit the National Museum in the country conducting. If you are the National Museum, stopping at attention as possible is our destination this time was by beating Dazaifu, to. South Korea is geographically close enough to lots of interesting jeonsimuldo, featuring the name of the level of the national exhibition as a whole is high. Just shot a total ban, only a cell phone and giving employees noticed that occasionally when I think of a little Downer part of the trend these days.

  • Awesome collection of exhibits. Very nice and love the lighting style in the museum.
  • Great history and artifacts! Recommend visiting if you have the time.
  • Awesome collection and great exhibitions from time to time. The souvenier shop is very cool.
  • This is a must see Japanese museum. The quality of the art collection is first rate and includes art from a number of Asian countries. The museum itself is stunning and easy to visit. You can easily spend three hours enjoying the beautiful collections exhibited. The museum also has special exhibits but reservations are usually necessary and may still involve quite a lengthy waiting in line.
  • Audio description available on multiple languages. Big selection of historical artifacts ranging from 1300s to the start of globalization
