  • 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.

  • Far to go all the way from Tokyo and while I want to go again from the old, and the good has been done according to the Narita Airport accommodation because there is that sense that it was. The next day, early in the morning on flights departing before this Museum and put together rational. Exhibits a vast, so have enough time. Somewhat a sense of amusement parks.

  • "History," for was a Japan only have been deployed in the said study about Japan's history and culture, this museum has been nicknamed the grand themes of the national history museum. Enjoy the picture with too many exhibitions,... said on the sidelines of the city temples pilgrimage and worship and so much time. Half a day is required....

  • 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 :)
  • An informative place.
  • 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.
