I loved this museum because they had staff in each room that you could ask questions and they would go into great detail explaining everything. That is just a great added touch that makes it stand out.

A great museum with some excellent exhibits. The paleontology section was superb as were the natural world exhibits. The Ground floor has the best balance of Japanese/ English translations however the lower floors (B2 and B3) are mostly only inn Japanese. The species are all...More

First caveat like the others have said, most of it is in Japanese only. There are still a good number of things to look at and see on the exhibits lacking English. As far as a science museum goes though, it is a little lackluster...More

If you enjoy looking at stuffed animals, pinned butterflies and cockroaches, rocks, clocks, microscopes, dinosaur bones, fossils, and diaromas, but with very few English labels, this is the place for you. But I prefer to read what I am looking at so I was a...More

There is something unique about Japan, and specially about Tokyo. The more you think you understand, more it will surprise you. For a country having history of imperialism and industrialization, it is very fascinating to see how much they love about nature. Tokyo, the one...More

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping

I would send an email to the museum and see if they would work with you or have an answer. The museum was a great place to visit, and if you had a business meeting/party there you would all truly enjoy the experience.
