    From Kyoto round trip Shinkansen fee, admission fee (¥ 1,600). I went to the viewing will be held today from here "Kofuku-ji in Kondo reconstruction Memorial special exhibition = unkei". Long line of the week still admission hours before a great crowd, the weather was fine,... is a great cultural appreciation day. From today being held up to 11/26. So no way regret taking prohibited since... taking pictures of the building.... It is to want to exit harried is like congestion of unkei's treasure statues, while 見とれます was pushed from behind. But according to what I hear, 11/7 is after the closing of the 5:00 PM from 7:00 PM about 2 hours special sneak preview and applicants, elected to enter, or can be enjoyed slowly... admitted without an invitation has been made seems not to exist. Maybe the vacant so we watch carefully and guess... I'm jealous!

    Went to see a special exhibit from the 10/18/2016. I realized that lacks basic knowledge of Zen Buddhism. The Zen founder that was a "daruma" everybody knows and learned for the first time. Also thought and even Buddhist temples in Japan and almost no one is the image of the high priest, but learned also that much portrayed monk statues and portraits are Zen.

    You will see the forward left side of the main building of the Tokyo National Museum. It is to celebrate the wedding of the Crown Prince, opened in the 0/1999 (1999) a modern two-storey building. Just "Thailand-Buddhist country shine-" exhibition was being held. Is 見易katta is also in the spacious exhibition was the 1,600 Yen entrance fee is a little expensive.

    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.

    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.
