This is a must do, best experience in Tokyo, you have to go here! The tour guide, the costumes, history and set up are incredible. Great with kids. For no extra cost can try on samurai and princess outfits at the end
Our family (two parents, two teenage girls) found this place on a map in Shinjuku. What a great find it was!
The cost of admission includes a small group guided tour which takes one hour. They explain each item with the history in enough detail...More

Well worth a visit. Make sure you stay for the free one hour guided tour. It’s a comprehensive history of the Samurai period, led by a great tour guide who has some quality dad jokes along with the tour info.

It was wonderful to be able to know a little more about these enigmatic characters, the guided tour is very good. I could verify that the movie of Tom Cruise has a little reason and that in truth the last samurai existed. They let you...More

Shinjuku is the commuting capital of Tokyo, and contains the busiest train station in the world. To the west, there's an office district with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office at its center. To the east, there’s a district with long-established department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the Imperial Household. It is quite famous as a venue for
cherry-blossom viewing in March and April. In Shinjuku, many restaurants operate all night, and districts such as Omoide Yokocho (Memory Lane) or Shinjuku Golden Machi have back streets filled with tiny restaurants and bars that reflect each owner’s unique taste and style.
No reservations are needed. I don’t think they take reservations. I do recommend taking a guided tour which I believe is part of the entrance fee. The web site also gives you approximatley 4 time slots where you are able... More
No reservations are needed. I don’t think they take reservations. I do recommend taking a guided tour which I believe is part of the entrance fee. The web site also gives you approximatley 4 time slots where you are able to see a sword fighting exhibition.

Actually, looking at what I've suggested above, if you decide to go to Takayama, I would make the order Kyoto-Takayama-Kanazawa-Tokyo.

Sanja Matsuri Festival May 18-20 ?? (0 Replies)
I will be in Tokyo for the first time during this festival. I am trying to plan my daily sightseeing. Originally I had planned to visit the “top 10” tourist sights in Tokyo sometime between Friday and Monday. But I am wondering if the events and crowds associated with this festival will make it necessary for me to alter my plans. Some of the places I might want to see are: Imperial Palace Gardens, Senso-ji Temple, Meiji Shrine, Ueno Park, Edo-Tokyo Museum, Tokyo National Museum,...More
