Great opportunity to get knowledge of old Japan culture, architecture and history. The museum building itself is an amazing platform with 4 big columns to sustain it.

Very impressed with the layout of this museum. Visited the permanent exhibition on the 5th & 6th floors. Learnt a lot. Allow at least 1.5hrs. Photos OK of most of the exhibits without a flash.
