  • Not a priority for a short stay in Tokyo maybe, but definitely worth a visit. The building's art nouveau architecture and furniture are fantastic. Sadly I couldn't stroll in the garden. The downloadable audio guide is pretty well done and has different languages. Even if the special exhibition isn't attractive to you, you still might want to discover the building.
  • Very interesting, beautiful , popular museum. Recommended.
  • Great art-deco design with an expansive park surrounding it. The exhibitions are laid out across its multiple floors so you get almost two exhibitions for the price of one.
  • Really nice open space connected to it, perfect for family picnics.
  • Its an excellently detailed art-deco building - everything from the woodwork to the grates to the ceiling tiles to the tapestry to the ... well, you get the picture. You can easily spend the best part of a couple of hours just noodling around the place!

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.
