We stumbled upon this just walking around Tokyo. The museum is uniquely designed and setup. While it does have some interesting things, it’s the garden that truly saves this visit. A pretty yet peaceful stroll and the garden is nicely done. If you are in...More

An oasis in the middle of the city. Quiet nature, beautiful and relaxing. The garden can easily keep you occupied with walking and pictures for 1-2 hours. The actual exhibits lean heavily on Japanese calligraphy, 500 year-old ink drawings, and 2,000 year-old Chinese bronzes. Very...More

Akasaka / Roppongi
Not so long ago the Akasaka and Roppongi areas were
famous for their nightlife, high-class restaurants,
bars and clubs. More recently, with the opening of
Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka Sacas, the
area has declared itself as the most fashionable spot
to be seen. The area also hosts the National Art
Center and the Mori Art Museum and lots of trendy art
