This museum is easily accessible from Mitsukoshimae exit A7 which leads almost directly to the entrance to the museum. The exhibitions that are put on there seem to be quite niche and upmarket. One or two of the staff speak English and English language information...More

It was a cold, sunny, Sunday afternoon and I thought I would stop working and try to do something "cultural". The hotel concierge found all kinds of exhibits related to Western art and culture, but that was not what I was looking for in Tokyo....More

Visited the Mitsui Memorial Museum on the recommendation of a local guide only to be thoroughly disappointed to say the least. What appears to be a wonderful collection is simply diminished to the foreign visitor by the complete lack of English signage and explanation. While...More

As a previous review said this museum is a bit of a wasted effort. The museum itself is fine, with all the usual facilities but nothing remarkable. It is also relatively small and houses only 100-200 artefacts per exhibit. The main problem with the museum...More

Visited this museum on multiple occasions as the exhibits change periodically. The museum itself is housed within a historically protected building which I find appealing and the museum focuses on traditional Japanese arts (eg, themes revolve around tea ceremony and accompanying equipment). Location in Nihombashi...More

Beautifully decorated entrance hall, quiet, peaceful and interesting exhibition. I saw a doll exhibition for Hina Matsuri which I greatly enjoyed. The Museum Shop itself is worth seeing. Wonderful, small inexpensive traditionally Japanese gifts can be had here.

You leave this museum feeling that they've wasted a great opportunity to showcase some wonderful Japanese cultural artifacts - a real shame. The museum itself is easily accessible. It's on the 7th floor of the Mitsui building, directly reachable from the Mitsukoshimae subway station on...More

This exhibit was about the Shugendō beliefs, and its ascetic hermits, displaying many objects recovered from Kimpusen in Nara prefecture. ( It is a fusion of Shintō, Buddhist, Taoist and ancient Chinese divination beliefs). The museum is next to the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. We were...More

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
