Museums in Tokyo 2007/8/7 10:09
Tokyo 23-ku
Hello,
Heading off to Tokyo for the 2nd time soon, and I was just wondering which museums you find the most interesting.
I went to the National Museum in Ueno Park a few years ago, and I thought I found it to be quite impressive. Are there any other museums of that scale in Tokyo?

I found the Edo-Tokyo Museum very interesting:

National Museum of Modern Art and Craft Gallery in Tokyo. These are two museums, one for paintings and one for handicrafts. Two buildings in the same location but about five minutes walk apart. They are just opposite the Imperial Palace.
Communication Museum in Otamechi area is another interesting one to visit.

Controversial 2007/8/8 17:47
I liked the war memorial museum at Yasukuni Shrine.

It is a controversial shrine and the museum content is no different.

You may not agree with the view of history it expresses, but that does not stop it being well put together and interesting.

The European Art gallery in Ueno was also something that I enjoyed. The main collection is pretty B grade, but the impressionist collection is good.
