We were very impressed with the location of this museum within Ueno Park which houses several other museums plus a Zoo all within a gorgeous park with temples and I'm very sure very pretty cherry blossoms and florals based on the season. The museum itself...More

Tokyo is an international city. When will they wake up to this fact and supply written and audio guides in English? Every other major museum does this.

Fantastic little gem . It cost less than 500 yen per person and was well worth the money . It's quiet and not busy at all so you can take your time to enjoy

The exhibitions ate very good. Although it is little crowded we really enjoyed it. It is well organized and it is worth it.

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
