  • Was the only visitor to the museum on a weekday afternoon, staff were friendly and directed me to the correct floor. Most of the drums can be played and I particularly enjoyed trying the different Tai...  more »
  • You can play some of the drums and there is a wide variety of instruments to see. It is small, but I'm pleased we went. I think children between 8-15 would enjoy the opportunity to play the instrument...  more »
  • Exhibition facility specializing in drum. Located in the traditional Japanese musical instruments and ritual tools shop. Funny but look good again. Shop for fun.

  • The drum museum is tiny and cosy. The descriptions are mostly in Japanese, but it doesn't matter. What matters is that you can play on most of the drums here. Listen to different sounds, feel different vibrations and basses from this impressive collection. Anyone who is into music will enjoy this place.
  • I've spent a great time at this place. I'm not a musician/don't have music skills but I have to confess the museum has a very interesting collection and, even better, visitors can play most of the drums!
  • Small museum where you can actually try the drums. But if you are a Taiko player, the first two floors (the shop) will be of interest...
  • Funny very small museum in Asakusa. When I visited it, I was alone for ALL the museum (well, it's only one room, but still). You can find drums from all over the world and ... you can play most of them. Enjoy it with one or two friends, the entrance is free I think and you can turn it into a small concert if you feel like musicians for an hour.
  • A lot more interactive than I expected! Can play 70-80% of the drums, but can be aweful loud with more than about 5 people in there as the museum consists of one room. For 500 yen it's a pretty good place to bash about.

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.
