  • Great gallery of tiny trees in Tokyo and probably the best. It's worth the hour commute. 800 yen admission includes a guided tour in English which is really nuanced and informative. The building itself is very beautiful. "Number 2" Bonsai Guy invited us to have a cup of tea, demonstrated his katanas and very thoughtfully gifted us a sculptural rock. Definitely a highlight of Tokyo!
  • The most homely and cozy museum I've ever visited! It's simply amazing, serene and so much more. I am most likely sure the museum is run by a family. And they are sooooo friendly, kind and cheerful. It's perfect for a family outing with babies, kids, you name it!
  • Absolutely beautiful location. The tea ceremony that's offered out of the museum is fun and interesting, although you need to book ahead of time.
  • If you like bonsai you have to go here. It's truly phenomenal. You won't believe how many bonsai of such high quality there are here . Bonus there's a giant koi pond where some extremely large koi live.
  • We had an awesome experience there. We booked the kimono experience and have been served some tea and handed out two katana swords. You have to book the kimono experience a few days earlier otherwise the sensei will not be there as it happened to us before. Then they let us stay there in our samurai outfits as long as we wanted and we took some pictures. Finally we were allowed to play with the two small shiba dogs. Great memories have been created on that day.

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.
