  • Have interests in the morning and went out. Was so-so crowd could appreciate leisurely. There is membership. Kinuta Park and adjacent, so go slowly blossom and it was perfect. Yoga District is peaceful, calm and, I wish to live.

  • I visited for the first time. Signs came through a nice residential area and around is ploddingly walked from the nearest station. Kinuta Park was quite spacious, but many families to come or, lying alone, watching the sky and there were people in a variety of styles. The Museum finally go in the Park and so. The exhibit is small, not big buildings are popular, so many people are slowly enjoyed one at a time. Yucky after return, had checked the bus to catapult toy had bought also walking down the street came and went.

  • I went to the exhibition, Eric Carle. So even a small child can enjoy atmosphere (not in that scene), and Park in pleasant green. From Yoga station bus, but by four people who split the taxi cost is fast and cheap. However, Orchard is a taxi ride home, so keep receipts for taxi companies to call hope. By the way go to was \650 \880, return. Adjacent restaurant is popular and not book it seems difficult.

  • This is a classy museum. Quite small so you don't get major exhibits. You do get more localized artists compared to other places so it's worth weeping an eye on its web site. Receptions are hosted here. Quaint cafe. It's also on the edge of Kinuta Park so it makes for a relaxed afternoon if you fancy a walk.
  • very friendly and helpful staff. nice Exhibitions
  • Museum of Kids alike adults
  • To staff the art exhibition space is compact, so exactly what good would. And Café in the basement and can be easy. Meals are served outside on the terrace, so it's a nice day. And the environment is a vast park in what to say and feel better.

  • I feel too good, so don't walk too far from the station is a little cumbersome, but went by bus from one station within a large park, instead of by bus. I thought everything in the Museum of fine arts. I went to see the original picture exhibition of Eric Carle was. Shop was divided in 2 places, so look at both and bought little regretted.

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.
