  • The museum might be small, but you have to allot maybe a half day or full day for it. It contains insightful stuff and tells you so much about the history of ads. The place is very much the epitome of...  more »

  • I loved this place, it is free to enter and has a lot of information and examples about advertising in Japan. the museum is downstairs of Caretta building, we found it easily.
  • The only museum I find interesting. The history of Japanese advertising with occasional special exhibitions about award winning commercials, copy etc. It's all free too! The only downside is that there's little about the digital advertising if today, but then it's run by Dentsu, the king of commercials* *since I wrote this, the advertising industry has been in a lot of trouble concerning overwork though.
  • Excellent translations and english material. Helpful staff (got my forgotten umbrella back!). Large variety of ads and lots of effort was put in. Got 2 postcards for filling out a survey. Very impressive considering entry was free and it doesnt feel like a gigantic ad for the ad company. Online ads were not really discussed at all, just a few marketing campaigns. Some criticism towards mass consumerism and manipulation through ads would have been nice (Im a critic to say the least) but I didnt expect it yet was positively surprised by the exhibition. No photos allowed inside!
  • This is bull$hit - we spent half an hour walking around this highrise complex looking for this museum - finally walked down about 5 floors of steps (thanks designers) - eventually found we were in the wrong building - the Canyon Terrace! - found the Caretta Mall - but despite staring at 4 different maps and bad signage we never found this effing museum - supposed to be on B2F - if an example of the ad maxim 'baffle' em with BS' - it totally worked - but I ain't buying what they're selling - and I suggest you don't bother either.
  • The museum is closed for renovation till December 2017!

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.
