( It is a fusion of Shintō, Buddhist, Taoist and ancient Chinese divination beliefs). The museum is next to the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. We were the only non-Japanese there. Only a Japanese audio guide available. We had a list in... More

It was a nice museum with great Japanese artefacts but it was 1300 yen/pp and it only took us about 45 min to go through.

In this museum you can see various kinds of history since the Edo era, which began around the 1600s. Their collection gives an overview of various work trips and developments to date. How Japan, especially Tokyo with various works of art and excellence from time to time.

Located within a shopping centre it is wonderful to see that there is a museum in a busy shopping precinct. Depending on your historical interest, it is worth a visit if you happen to be in the same shopping area.
