  • Even weekdays, and what once in 10:00, venue of 90-minute wait, come the old--, say?. Foreign residents with children in the here and Smartphone with crackling, and photos. Did not I would recommend paying the indifference, 1,600 yen, 2, after I gave up going.... Was going to put up with the mark of beauty on the TV-and no regrets

  • Japan called cultural powers (?) The National Museum had great expectations from the trip. Please save the time and stamina.

  • Only went to the Japanese section. This museum is amazing. It has a greatly diverse collection of Japanese art. There is a Kabuki section and a tea ceremony section. There are a lot of amazing collections. It's fascinating. Definitely recommend.
  • Tokyo National Museum really has a lot of collections. It's a great place for museum enthusiasts. I recommend one day full trip only for this museum if you really want to see all of the collections because they have a lot of interesting galleries. I went to the museum for 4 hours and that's not enough 😅
