    If Meiji Jingu gaien you take a walk, particularly massive buildings, signs and had written and the Meiji Memorial picture gallery. It was downright historic weight of buildings. Hotel is of course good, but overwhelmed by appearance alone. It is a few minutes walk from JR Shinanomachi station.

    From the JR Shinano-machi, 3-minute walk. After the art museum tour, head to shrine Stadium, explore the gingko tree. Hit Aoyama-Dori, Aoyama 1-Chome or tea on gaien-Mae. Dating a good course.

    A great property serving as a gallery that houses, in my opinion, so few paintings!

    The building itself is great. But it is all about that 80 big picture only.

    You can learn the history of the Meiji era through painting. One after the other in the painting comes out of history textbooks and history books. Seen in 500 yen. Available on weekdays. It was chartered. Though parking is available one day 1,550 yen.

    Pictures published in social studies textbooks and ordered and, overwhelmed by its size. Reminiscent of hard, sticking thoroughly regardless of Japanese-style and Western-style paintings I would work only. And in addition, the building itself is also not very clean despite the period go inside and look up at the ceiling and overwhelmed. It's where you want to keep around to ensure 1. It is good to go.
