“Disappointing indeed.”

The Tokugawa Museum
Ranked #56 of 136 things to do in Mito
Attraction details
Reviewed 2 March 2012

I agree with the Japanese review entitled "disappointing". We spent less than 15 minutes in this museum, and even that was stretched out because we didn't want to disappoint the two very sweet staff who had NO OTHER VISITORS while we were there. No English signage or brochures. Some nice pieces on display, but not particularly interesting. The most complicated family tree I've ever seen -- all in Japanese -- but little else to give you a feel for the history involved. This is clearly targeting Japanese visitors who learned the basics back in school.
