  • Today were at the show, Barry Mcgee in this 4jetazhnom a small museum, designed in 1990 for themselves Bott. Tickets for 800 yen, a great shop art-objects and souvenirs on the first floor, there are interesting trivia and postcards. Necessarily keep coins for 100 yen , with bags are not allowed in the Museum, and for the lockers need coins. Cozy and at home around many cafes and galleries

  • The Museum of modern art from Aoyama-Dori gaien-Nishi Dori located just a few minutes on foot. To be honest I didn't know was visited for the first time at the exhibition in Tokyo in this museum. Art exhibitions as well as a spacious Museum Shop, just go shop for funny.

  • It takes you like 4 steps to see each floor, the only good thing is the book store that you can visit for free
  • Small museum as a gallery. I like the atmosphere.
  • Small gallery but a fantastic art book store
  • Really good exhbs!
  • Not much going on. Gallery is more accurate than museum.

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.
