  • 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.
  • A splendid exhibit is, of course, but in very nice surroundings, such as the gingko tree nearby, including the common television and magazine shoots. Perfect for jogging or walking. I think the location was the main reason the golden leaves of the Ginkgo biloba is a great crowd, but in other seasons or spend it well. It is embarrassing memories childhood, was confused with the Parliament.

  • Exhibits painting, Western painting a masterpiece is our review. 0/1926 Memorial Hall was completed (important cultural property) as worth a look is. Another great short. Including rows of Ginkgo trees from Aoyama-Dori, weather permitting come those who want relaxing.

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.
