  • If you tried to visit the near contemporary Museum of art because the event was in Kiba Park last weekend, was under renovation. Walk from Kikukawa underground subway station and 5 minutes I think is useful also to find opportunities, you want to revisit. Painted around the Museum is surrounded by a construction fence, but pretty.

  • I visited on a rainy weekday for its normal exhibition. It was quite empty and half of it was under maintenance. The works were quite organized though, and there is a small library inside.
  • Have to take either a 2 stop bus or walk 15 minutes from the nearest subway stop. Quite costly for multiple exhibits, but well curated.
  • Went for the Pixar 30 year exhibition, nice facility but it was constant bumping into people. Crowds are huge and I feel with all the tourists, they can have some more foreign speaking workers
  • Love all the museums in Tokyo. Affordable and clean!
  • Amazing building in itself worth a visit. Seems to always have good exhibitions on, went to the current showing about Tokyo and it's future which was very interesting. Two good cafe choices with nice food.

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.
