Step back into the Edo Period at Tokugawa Art Museum, dedicated to telling the story of the Tokugawa shoguns who ruled Japan for 250 years. Located on the site where one of the family's feudal residences stood, the museum collects a number of artifacts related to the family, with antiques from around the world showcasing their economic dominance and tastes, as well as objects related to everyday life during the period. Admire the artistry of the ceramics and calligraphy, the pristine, carefully designed swords, and the elegance of the furniture the clan surrounded themselves with.

  • There are many famous for Tokugawa house edge. To guide my friend live in Nagoya, and come from the region where the trouble is here are you nice and pleased. Many times though, and tell the wonders of Japan culture reproduces the tea room of the Nagoya Castle and Edo Princess dolls, trousseau, mother-of-Pearl handle spear and none is fun and new discoveries.

  • Nice museum, with English descriptions. Not too big, not too small, just fine to keep good memories. 
  • Really disappointing. 1200¥ for a museum as boring as the living room of my granny. It has some interesting objects. But the presentation is boring. For non-japanese visitors many of the objects shown, keep their secret because there's no explanation what it is and what it was used for. For example there is this great armor, but neither materials nor symbolism of this piece of craftsmanship are explained. Wikipedia would have taught me more.
  • Exhibition does not match the grandeur of Tokugawa dynasty.
  • excellent museum for non japanese visitors of Tokyo giving a good overview of Japanese history and life.
  • Will display treasures from the Tokugawa family organized, easy to understand, because every project is fun. However, consideration for foreign visitors there, too. For example there in Japan, detailed description of what kind of scene painting exhibition of the tale of Genji picture scroll, and in English almost description was missing. Not translated into English or lack of translation staff artificial dare? Cultural Ambassador to explain to those around us the culture of Japan if foreign visitors to the country home. Want to know Japan is eager to pay up the money and then successfully to improving the understanding. Has become a disappointing flow, such as "learn yourself later" will major opportunity loss for Japan.
