  • One month ago, BS in Thailand exhibition Miura itou and Jun was PR but cold. Even thought I wonder if honest, sober, why? check has gone to Thailand, so, I went in the morning of the first day. Crowded as expected, did not exist. The Buddha statue was exhibited, such as remembered Bangkok National Museum exhibition often fell within the Museum two years ago, trouble. So so not dark room more than others I tried my best. The Buddha image of pilgrimage. It is sober, however, it was interesting for me.

  • Great location near Ueno station, can be overwhelming a lot to see, lockers available there for backpacks, cameras,bags
  • Very big place used for temporary exhibitions of the National museum. The interesting ones attract a huge crowd, so be ready to queue for 3 hours or so after you get in (you might have to queue outside before too). The building is nice and well maintained, serving right its purpose.
  • Beautiful and modern facility as a museum and a community hall.
  • It's good
  • By the Mummy from Fujin & Raijin; There are many great exhibits of Khmer statues and figurines. Unlike the painting, always seen it. Enjoy all day breakfast food at all. It attracted over Canal or Starbucks.

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.
