  • Shinjuku ancient, medieval, the exhibition suggests a predilection for literature seems to modern surveying and probably planning their hobby or. To see the library, Soseki and slowly can concentrate on reading. I just opened Soseki Ishiyama bunch Memorial nearby, though there was such a place. Luxury!

  • The Edo Tokyo Museum in Ryogoku is a Museum of the history of the entire Tokyo Museum very focused spot in Shinjuku it here! Than it has in the past went to the Edo-Tokyo Museum, contents and was quite happy with the staff. This detail will be able in the Tokyo water museum located near Edo, there is a display about water, but about it, so come visit on the set.

  • Interesting artifacts from all eras of Shinjuku history, most of the labels lack english descriptions though.
  • Highlights at this charming local museum include life-size reconstructions of an Edo-era storehouse, residential interiors, and half a streetcar. There's also a large scale-model diorama representing the early post town of "Naito Shinjuku" - rows of shops and houses surrounded by farms, occupying the area between modern-day Shinjuku station and Isetan Department Store. Seemingly random memorabilia from 1900-1960 focus on Shinjuku's history as an entertainment district, filled with bars and restaurants, cinemas and live theaters. One unexpected display illustrates the history of Japanese curry rice, using old newspaper articles, menus and plastic food models. Other exhibit areas show off archeological finds from the Jomon and Yayoi periods and a number of Edo-era paintings and drawings. Off to one side is a temporary exhibition room, which was hosting a collection of 1950s-era photos of Shinjuku station and vicinity when we visited. The small museum shop at the entrance offers postcards from the permanent collection. Although it's not nearly as expansive in scope as the Edo-Tokyo Museum in Ryogoku, it does provide some interesting glimpses of local life in Shinjuku through the ages, and is worth stopping by if you're in the area.
  • Free admission and many 100 yen in Tokyo's Municipal Museum and archive in here is charged 300 yen. However, it's worth it. Troublesome approach of the ball the required car scratches.  If you come by car, just in case, beside the entrance is parked two more spaces are taken, so with any luck there.  Starting with exhibition of pottery is natural too, and Panasonic's history as a center of business development as the Edo period Naito Shinjuku, Koizumi Yakumo and Natsume Soseki of the early Showa era, Entertainment Tokyo, each staring away, but which had come ago.  Think the evening arrives, so no time to 17:30 will be closed for, leaving the mind after going out, at some point, Let's revisit. You may say that publications are sold at the counter, mass together in 23 wards in most well-developed. This step slowly sifting will buy some books.

  • Has excellent exhibits on the region. Temporary exhibitions are unique. It is in quiet gardens, in the middle of a city I don't think. Go down the historic tiles embedded Alley is minus just a little far away from the station, but also fun.

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.

For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
