Lose yourself here for a couple of hours and you certainly won't regret it, however, there are more "must see" things to do than this so only if you have the time.

A good visit of 4 floors of japanese culture. Currently doing a review of a Europea painter so it might be a bit hard to see it all. Need to see this anyway.

Even if some painting are from occidental artists the main part of the exhibitions shows japanese interpretation of modern art. I discovered very good painters i didn't know before.

A very decent, quiet museum with most artifacts on two floors only. No world-famous works. With a convenient location near our hotel, we enjoyed a visit for a little over one hour there.

Honestly, the highlight for me was the air conditioning and break from the oppressive heat of Tokyo summer after a stroll through the Imperial Palace gardens. The art collection is a mixed bag. There are a few Western paintings of note, mostly post Impressionists. It...More

Although staff is a bit stiff, we loved the museum nevertheless. It's design, exterior and interior, is very beautiful. We loved the exhibition, a lot of Japanese works. We walked in after visiting the park nearby.

This place is so far removed from what we've come to expect from modern art spaces in Europe that you need to be aware of a few issues, particularly if you're visiting with children. First, the setting for the art is fusty and more akin...More

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
