  • Had the Museum where a short walk through the underpass, out on the ground floor. Let us look after you put good opportunities and the good atmosphere around, feel the fashion sense and went to the entrance of the 12/18 up and closed by, Munch was stranded. Turned out I was too bad. I think next time come check the date.

  • The first room is almost completely devoted to Indian fabrics and some kimono. While in the second room, there is a wide assortment of kimono, but they are all just "hanging". Is certainly interesting, but I was expecting "a fitting European style", with kimono worn on Dummies etc etc. I seem to have understood that the exhibition changes often. Anyway to ¥500 is fine.

  • A little bit expensive for the small size but there are incredible garments on display and it is definitely a must see if you love fashion and design! The staff didn't have much English but were very gracious and helpful.
  • Unnn...It is closing now. They said they are changing the exhibition, and will open later.
  • Do not expect to find all the Bunka's collection from the book. Is a very small museum and every few monts the change the show selection around a theme. Also, you can't take photos. But you will love the place if you like Fashion. Also you will find the little torso keychains from Bunka Fashion College in the reception.
  • Small museum but well laid out and informative about different shibori techniques.
  • Embroidery show was beautiful- very little English but there is some. Downstairs is Japanese embroidery and Upstairs is the rest of the world. 30 min is plenty to see it all. 500yen admission.

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.
