  • 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
  • Is the special exhibition fascinated by the appearance of Buddhist images in best area near the leads! I 2 and appreciation from 360 degrees in bodhisattva Moonlight sunlight at Yakushi-JI, I. It is thanks to the curator of the time.
