  • I think we look at Sakura Castle to visit the Museum, I visited was a great mistake. History enthusiasts should visit taking the tour time for at least 4 hours. Keisei Sakura station bus terminal through the route on your right, in 15 minutes will take you to Sakura Castle Park. National Museum entrance arrive and walk signs, information boards and in some places along the way. Bus Museum and climb the Hill in plum blossom, which is a museum. Pay 420 Yen admission fee at the exhibition entrance, once out to the outside courtyard courtyard around right from 1st Exhibition Hall (1st floor), no. 6 exhibition Office (BF). Had planned the visit time 1 hour and 20 minutes, and three exhibition rooms (medieval, modern, modern) but cannot be visited, was. I have seen until now, various museums, such as the Edo-Tokyo Museum, where exhibits are best, not you. National Museum of Japanese history indeed. I know the history of Chiba, Sakura and various places in Japan's history, folklore study. Content is much too much, we won't explain. We recommend pictures to come visit. Is back from the bus stop 2 hour out JR station by bus about, has been sightseeing in Chiba City.

  • But I went to the ruins of Sakura Castle to lunch I visited. Description of each exhibit is also for children and even adults like me more easy to understand. Not enough time in the half-day because many Braille and large Museum. A good look at things one day take the time is required.

  • If you are interested in Japanese history and culture, this place is totally worth visiting, despite the long distance travel from the beaten track for tourists. As shown in the photos below, the museum exhibits consist of artifacts, both real and replica, miniature dioramas, and their descriptions, thoroughly covering from the prehistory to modern. The only downside is that the descriptions are practically available only in Japanese, and that you must rent a portable audio guidance (free of charge, and comes in English, Mandarin, or Korean) to understand what the displays stand for. Make sure to reserve plenty of time for the visit, as it will take a full day to explore all the exhibitions.
  • super detail models for old Japanese towns and Villages. not so often seem Japanese side of the WW2 stories. Great short trip (20 minutes direct train + 7 minutes bus ride) for 5 hours+ layover in NRT Airport.
  • Unusually big museum with a lot of exhibitions, models and helpful staff.
  • I wish there were more english descriptions in the first few gallery. It was an awesome trip regardless. Would definitely go here again :)
  • Focused on archaeology. Very good exposition of the Yayoi period, burial mounds and the development of Japanese society through the Middle Ages and Edo period, and modern times. English and other language audio guides available at no charge.
