    I went to see the birds and beasts caricature exhibition, was doing to 11/2016. Remember even now, anyway most people entering the Museum waited for about 90 minutes. In the evening because it was gradually getting colder seasons and cold, with great curiosity. At the very least, at the hotel waiting for me good, but also no, and wait outside. It is tough to wait out in the summer and winter. Very large national museum. Even though will be waiting at the hotel space.

    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.
