  • Right now they hold a special exhibition about architecture in anime movies (mostly Miyazaki). It is so popular that almost all thematic souvenirs are sold out :) Great place to get know about Japanese carpentry. They even have a Hall of Fame with masterpieces from well-known families. Everything has English translation.
  • Great exhibitions, well signed and with English audio guide. The architecture of the museum itself and the gardens are lovely too. Easy to spend 3 hours here. There's currently an exhibit on architecture in manga movies from Studio Ghibli... No English descriptions for that though.
  • Fascinating, excellently presented, comprehensive free guides in English at your own pace. Well worth a visit. Allow a couple of hours.
  • The most beautiful museum I have seen. Lovely garden. Great display. Interactive plus workshop. Shows Japanese carpentry and joinery well advanced from 600AD. iPod Audio guide included. Entrance on south side.
  • Amazing museum, perfect balance of old tools with modern technology, great interactive exhibits in a beautiful building. Highly recommended.
