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.

  • Interesting and worth a visit if you're nearby. It's quite small but crammed with drums and all sort of allied instruments from around the world. Good information, including in English and notable in ...  more »
  • On the bottom floor of the museum is a store, there is a giant drum in the window you can't miss. Walk into the store and let the person at the counter know you are there to see the museum, 500 Yen to...  more »
  • I guess a true drum fanatic would go crazy about the museum. Personally, I was just curious. I had expected more Japanese taiko drums, but there were drums from many places, including Greenland and No...  more »

  • 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!
  • 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.
  • 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.
