A small but well prepared exhibition! All ukiyoe are featuring a common theme in this special exhibition and it is absolutely eye opening. Most of ukiyoe have a brief English description to show the story behind. Worth visiting!
This museum has 2 small floors where the different woodblock prints hang on the outside walls so that everyone follows the same trajectory following the wall. Every work has a Japanese and English explanation about the work and the location. It took me one hour...More
Just go. It is 700 yen to see some of Hiroshige's later works of Edo. The works include English descriptions with Google maps of the area depicted. Very easy to understand. Impressive prints! It is wonderful that Ota collected these over his lifetime. It was...More
I've always been fascinated by ukiyo-e woodblock prints and this is the best place to see them. Tucked away on a quieter street than most in Harajuku, it's a calm oasis in the middle of chaos. Exhibits change monthly. The exhibit I was most fortunate...More
If you like Hokusai wood block prints then this museum is also worth a visit. Tucked away close to Takeshita street this museum has 2 floors of this type of printed artwork. Wonderful images. Allow an hour at least to view, more if you want...More

The exhibition is selected monthly from their over14,000 collection of “ukiyo-e”. You can sit down on tatami and enjoy Japanese art quietly. All explanation is in Japanese and in English. Tiny “Zen” garden behind the stairs is cute. Recommend for solo-travelers or couples. No photos...More
There are countless opportunities to shop in the Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast, Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.
At the Museum of Yebisu Beer you can learn about the beer that was responsible for the town’s name, and enjoy dining at the popular noodle shops in the surrounding area.
