Description

If you plan to visit just one museum in Tokyo, the Tokyo National Museum should be it. Dive into Japanese culture via over 3,000 items across all art and historic fields, including paintings, calligraphy, sculpture, decorative arts, and archaeology.

The place is colossal and worth every second! Exhibits change all the time too, so there's always something new to see.

The Tokyo National Museum is the oldest and largest of Japan's museums, and it's also home to the country's best collections of art and archeological artifacts.

Browse over 3,000 different items from the permanent collection inside six different buildings crammed with trinkets and treasures – you'll need most of the day!

Temporary exhibitions are always being added and changed, so no two visits are the same. There's insightful information in English throughout and if you want more depth, join a tour or rent an audio guide when you get there.
