This museum houses a collection of beautiful, old, woodblock prints. It’s fascinating to see how the artists in the 1800s represented life in Japan. For 1000 yen you get the special exhibit as well. Note that the museum is pretty small and can be done...More
Ohota museum is one of the greatest Ukiyo-e museums in Japan. When I visited, Hiroshige Utagawa exhibition was opened. The pictures are well-preserved and explanations of pieces are scrupulous and precise. I enjoyed good work, its background and history of Edo-period artist. In the first...More
This is about 5 minutes walk from JR Harajuku Sta. or Meiji-jingu-mae Sta. of Tokyo Metro.
This small art museum(2 floors) of Ukiyo-e, which is a genre of Japanese art flourishing from 17th through 19th centuries, is famous for its rich collection of 14,000 works....More
A small but well prepared exhibition! All ukiyoe are featuring a common theme in this special exhibition and it is absolutely eye opening. Most of ukiyoe have a brief English description to show the story behind. Worth visiting!

I've always been fascinated by ukiyo-e woodblock prints and this is the best place to see them. Tucked away on a quieter street than most in Harajuku, it's a calm oasis in the middle of chaos. Exhibits change monthly. The exhibit I was most fortunate...More
There are countless opportunities to shop in the Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast, Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.
At the Museum of Yebisu Beer you can learn about the beer that was responsible for the town’s name, and enjoy dining at the popular noodle shops in the surrounding area.
