4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

The building itself is worth seeing: a former townhouse owned by the ruling lords of Samurai in Kumamoto in the Edo era, its architectural features are under renovation until the end of November, but on a previous visit I enjoyed seeing the valuable and historically important cultural properties in the collection. Admission is only JPY600.

Staying in Ikebukuro

Neighborhood Profile
Ikebukuro
Ikebukuro is an area of massive development. Several thousand tenants occupy two giant department stores and shopping malls, where all sorts of shopping and gourmet foods can be enjoyed. The 60-story building at the east entrance of the station, Sunshine City, is a landmark within Ikebukuro and features an aquarium, planetarium, theme park as well as an observation platform. The popular name for the western side of this area is "Otome Road" (Maiden Road) and there are many shops selling products related to anime with a female theme. It has rapidly become the worldwide headquarters for ‘otaku’ or geek culture.
