Allow your host to introduce you to the quirky underbelly of one of the world’s most wonderful and outlandish cities as you go to places like the Museum of Parasites (informative, and slightly crawly, we admit) or the crazy, committed cosplay districts like Akihabara. Head to a themed snake cafe where you can cuddle up to a slithery friend over coffee and if that's not for you there’s also hedgehog and owl cafes! Round off your time in Piss Alley which despite its misleading name, is actually a super eccentric alleyway home to many izakaya pubs!<br>Within 24 hours after booking you'll receive a short questionnaire about your personality and interests. Based on your responses, you'll be assigned a like-minded host. Your host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary to help you discover what makes the city unique. You'll also agree on a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience, you can always change your mind about what you want to do.

A real modern and very nice museum dedicated to the art of photography located in Yebisu, Tokyo. An easy to reach area in Tokyo. I especially went there to see the exhibition of photographs of Tokyo made by the famous Japanese photographer Masataka Nakano. He is famous to make photographs without traffic and/or people in it. Very special indeed. The exhibition was very impressive with photos dating back to the early 1990’s up till present times. All photos were in a large format. By pure chance the photographer was present at the exhibition that day and I was able to talk with him for a short while. Impressive and creative man. Unfortunately this specific exhibition will finish at the end of January 2020, but exhibitions will continue to be held there which makes a visit to this museum always worthwhile.

This is a very good gallery with 3 exhibitions on when we visited. I am afraid I don’t really get the modern video stuff but if you do then it’s there. The more traditional photographic stills are excellent and well worth a visit.

There were 3 special exhibitions ongoing and i chose the World Press Awards. Good selection of the prize winners in various categories. A bit depressing though, as they mainly depict sad stuff - US border issue, US opoid situation, wars, animal cruelty etc.

Visited this afternoon and really enjoyed it. Only 2 exhibition halls are open with the one in the basement closed for installations. Admission ticket is pricey about Yen1000 but worth the ticket . Was pleased to catch the 1948 works of Eugene Smith’s series on the country doctor which was awesome. Another well known Japanese photographer Narahara Nikko photos on Gunkanjima miners were featured. Ticket price also includes entry into the library on the 4th floor . Would suggest combining the visit with a tour of Yebisu beer museum. Tours are only for Japanese speaking but visitors are free to walk inside the small museum and buy a beer with some food at a reasonable price .

Nice building. Solid exhibits. English translations. It is pricy. Each exhibit costs a separate amount. We should have skipped one of them (early British photographs) merely because it’s not of interest to me. They did a good job curating it. The Ravages of War exhibit is a must see.
