    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.

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.
