This museum was quite near our hotel and sounded like an attractive proposition for a late afternoon visit. So we made our way over there and the museum has not just closed, the whole building has been demolished! It was quite fun to wander up...More

Thought we'd check it out on a rainy Tokyo day. Got there to find the building behind hoarding and totally demolished. Hope they got the art out before the wreckers came! Went to Tokyo Station for ramen instead so the morning wasn't entirely lost!

Interesting private Art collection of the Ishibashi family (founding family of Bridgestone). Although you won't be spending more than an hour to look at everything. Worth the visit if you're in the area/..

I managed to only visit once before they closed for renovations a few weeks ago and I'm very happy I did. The collection on show was uncreatively named "The Best of the Best", but it really was a very beautiful collection, with several pieces of...More

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
