  • Went to the TNM to show a real son of a 4-year-old recently learned the Jomon pottery. Pottery are on display in the main building, but seriously I absolutely recommend archaeological exhibition of. From the Paleolithic archaeological artefacts during the Kofun period of this time it is exhibited. I watch a shading johmon must be listed in the textbook or river rice ship tumulus silver inlaid inscription sword, such as. Heiseikan, special exhibition in the main I often come to visit, do not miss the exhibition.

  • You should because it is a short walk past the Zoo from JR Ueno Station. You can enter right away box office aside, get a ticket in advance ticket office is located at the entrance of the National Museum, but. It is 1 minute walk from to Heisei-Kan. The on-site lockers are available free of charge. Seems reasonable also entered in the 1 hour wait, but still free. Without the proper size inside is not too broad, not too small, tired look, good location.

  • A large, beautiful museum that you could easily spend the full day at, and only 620 yen to get in. We also rented the audio guide (English) for 500 yen which was decent. Although I suspect it's better in other languages as in English the guides were per room, as opposed to a specific item. Definitely stop by the gift shop too, as they have really nice postcards and shirts which are all very reasonably priced!
  • An amazing museum with many Japanese treasures. Many signs are in English, and the museum map is available in a variety of languages. The entrance fee is very reasonable, especially if you are a student and show your school id. We only spent a few hours here, but you could easily spend a whole day! The museum gift shop is worth a visit, even though it's a little overpriced.
  • Worth seeing if you have time Chinese, and Indian art, including more than 100 national treasures. The Tokyo National Museum is a nice museum. It is worth the visit if you have time and are interested in Japanese art. We went to see the Samaurai collection, which was good but rather small. We only toured the main building so I can't say much for the entire museum, but the building we saw lacked any signs providing information on history or culture. With only a few days in Tokyo we felt that going here wasn't really worth our time.
  • A must. It's great to get at least some broad strokes of Japan's historical development. Incredible pieces illustrate early chinese and Korean cultural influences. I suggest you try it at the beginning of your visit to Japan (unlike me) and your experience of the country will far richer .
  • Great, family-friendly place. We just visited today amd not only do you get a discount on adult tickets when you bring a baby/child, they also have a very private room if you need to nurse your baby during your visit. I look forward to visiting again soon.

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.
