The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

Small museum and was totally packed with locals. We could see a snake of people forming before the museum opened and joined the queue. I believe we were one of the rare foreigners there. Every step of the way was guided. You queue to buy the tickets, queue to go up the stairs, queue to see the paintings etc. An eye opening experience. Once is enough.

Great exhibit - very small exhibit space. Beautiful setting next to Kando river and near Waseda University. Place was PACKED on a Sunday late morning which made visiting the exhibit less of an enjoyable experience. However seeing 100's of old ladies peering intently at the Shunga art made me smile.

Went for the current Shunga (erotic art) exhibition . Shocked to see this tiny museum (in a colonial house) packed to the rafters, and most are elderly couples

Sadly most descriptions are in Japanese, and it's so crowded that I couldn't each piece in detail

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.
