  • Awesome museum in Ueno park. It's not free but pretty cheap. You can spend a few hours in there easy. Definitely worth checking out.
  • Perfect place to visit on a cold and rainy day. We spent a good 3 hours exploring this place. Fascinating to look at old Japanese scrolls and armor. The surrounding museum grounds are also very picturesque and worth a wonder.
  • When: 27/10/15 - 21/02/16: 9:30 am - 5:30 pm Where: Tokyo National Museum, How much: ¥1600 Adults, ¥900-1200 Students 13-9 Ueno Koen Over two thousand years ago, Qin Shi Huang, China’s first emperor (through self-appointment) created a remarkable army that remained protected, hidden away until excavation in the 1970s revealed the Terracotta Warriors. Since then, people all around have clamored to see even a fraction of the army, which has resulted in triumphant museum ticket sales and crushing crowds gathering at the exhibits. This unceasing demand has finally brought the warriors to Tokyo for a limited time. Recently discovered artifacts, including pottery, military implements, household items, murals, bronze chariots, and a number of the warriors will be present. Skip the flight to China and stop by the museum for a sample of the full-scale display for a fraction of the price – there’s a photo corner where you can get your picture taken with the warriors and make your own memories immortal, too
  • So many things to see. Love seeing the toys and weapons they had in the past.
  • An excellent national museum with a good range of artefacts and history to appeal broadly. I particularly enjoyed the art and armour they had available.
