  • After a difficult subway ride followed by a Taxi cab drive we arrived yo find the place closed. To ripen at another site in 2018!! Well well. Stay warned  more »
  • beautiful swords of amazing quality and history.If you enjoy Japanese swords, there is no better display in the world.  more »
  • Costs 600JPY. A single floor exhibition with various blades, decorated hilts and holsters (and more). The items on display don't seem to have a decent English description, and more English information...  more »

  • The museum is moving and is closed until 2018. There is only one display in the lobby. When I come back I will amend my review. I wish there had been a donation box, I would have supported the museum, from the single display I saw it would be amazing.
  • Entry was only 600¥ per person. Just like the other reviewers said, the exhibit is very small, but the swords are in incredible condition considering how old they are. It was good to see but it was a very short visit. They will be relocating the museum soon.
  • So many cool swords - learned the difference between a katana and a tashi - this place is currently closed and will be reopening in a different location 2018
  • Stunning collection of Japanese metal work. Closed now but will reopen soon in a new location.
  • Not in service any more. In move to new location. Check the website.
