Art Museum Museum
Admire an array of art exhibits at Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, a cultural institution located within a wider public park. Originally opened in 1926, the facility underwent major changes in 1975 and 2010, creating a contemporary space that appeals inside and out. The six galleries host exhibits on a range of international art scenes and artists; each space serves only for temporary shows, as the museum does not have a permanent collection. Head back into the European Renaissance, get to know contemporary Japanese artists, or admire folk art from across the globe at this ever-changing venue. Check the website to see what's on currently. By using our Tokyo travel itinerary planner, you can arrange your visit to Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum and other attractions in Tokyo.

  • We were very impressed with the location of this museum within Ueno Park which houses several other museums plus a Zoo all within a gorgeous park with temples and I'm very sure very pretty cherry blos...  more »
  • Speaking of the Ueno Museum, Museum of fine arts. A nice area you can immerse yourself in the arts. Though especially Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, Museum of the matrix isn't an exaggeration. It is nice to have lunch in a restaurant near Tokyo Art College after touring.

  • This place helds some "world-class" temporary exhibitions at an admission fee around ¥2000 (different discount available for different students, ID required).
  • Great place to spend an afternoon. Several outdoor installations as well. Nice gardens on the museum grounds.
  • Amazing museum, full of big and small art exhibitions, the fee for the smaller ones is so cheap. It's always changing so you get so see something different almost every time.
  • great museum in ueno. make sure to get your tickets in advance.
  • Art exhibits change regularly. Price is a bit expensive but exhibitions are of a high quality.

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.
