  • We visited here on our second day in Japan and are so glad that we did. It is a special collection that is well displayed and has signs in English as well as Japanese. We returned on the 23rd day of o...  more »
  • Any small museum with a collection of prints. The collection changes regularly. During our visit, the general theme was animals. The exhibition is organized on 2 levels, not great, but it takes time to read the explanations and observe each work in detail. Lockers to exhibit at the entrance to leave his purse. Small shop on the floor below where they essentially decorated fabrics.

  • I tried to go, told popular exhibitions featuring animals. The wall exhibit, reflections in the glass, but some had to watch various types of collection. Was crowded because it was the weekend morning?. When only one point after a through a Ferris wheel, you want to watch it again, following the route to go, "割ri込mann terrible" is 怖jiedzui in front of Daddy, was clear.

  • Nice little museum specialized in Japanese woodblock prints ukiyoe. Exposition changes every month. Ideally located in Harajuku. Excellent Japanese souvenirs shop at B1F.
  • Small museum with regular ukiyo e exhibitions. Also with surprising ones I haven't seen before.
  • Compact Gallery but there is always good and interesting material on display. This is probably my favorite gallery in Tokyo.
  • Worth a visit! Good size for a museum - enough to look at for an hour or so without being overwhelming. Exhibits rotate - we went to the Hokusai exhibit which was well laid out and labelled, and had some really nice pieces.
  • I want to buy that 7000 yen mini-8bit-beatbox

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.
