  • Great overview of Japanese history. Worth visiting. Doesn’t take long to walk through, but can take as long as you want. I enjoyed the displays of Kimonos and armor.

  • 600円で、日本を始めとする東アジア、さらには日本でも奈良~飛鳥~平安時代の1000年以上もの貴重な財産を観賞できる博物館です。一部を除いて、私的利用目的で展示品の撮影は可能です。連綿と続く過去の文化を肌で感じられるでしょう。 春と秋の特定の期間中、本館裏の庭園を散策することが出来ます。春の息吹、暮れゆく秋の気配を感じながら散策するのは、ここならではの贅沢かと思います。 特別展は、大抵の場合平成...  more

  • A to go spot if you visit Tokyo !
  • As the name suggest, Tokyo national museum, must be a great place. It has a lot of collection and personality I like the Buddha statue the most. In my opinion, The collection set is good but not enough. I have seen many more collections in other museum like Fukuoka museum. Comparing to that I don't think it has a lot of collection but he definitely has some precious collection. It is in the center of Japan, I think there are lots of areas to improve. But, you will definitely have a good time in the museum.
