  • This museum is easily accessible from Shibuya, it's 20 minutes on the metro. While the museum is small and may not seem very grand, it actually provides you with a window into the artisans of Japan's past. The focus on common, not high art, is very refreshing. There are some beautiful pieces in the museum that validate your excursion to get here.
  • Nice building but an utterly dull display. Very expensive also at 1100 yen per adult. Not recommended.
  • Gorgeous building. Doesn't allow photos.
  • Good exhibitions in a nice old building. Check before you go as on few days a second building is available to visit.
  • authentic old house houses "rustic" art. ceramics, basketry and masks

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.
