Opened in 1940, this incredible museum located in the heart of Tokyo is home to an impressive collection of Japanese, Chinese and Korean art. Hundreds of antiques line the gallery halls—a sample of the even more expansive collection, which is combed through for monthly shifts in public art displays.
In addition to the rich artistic history of these Asian artifcats, travelers can explore the stone paths of the well-manicured grounds outside the galleries, where teahouses, sculptures and a glass-walled café designed by Kuma Kengo round out the museum experience.
The museum is located in the Minato district of Tokyo, just a short walk from Exit A5 of Omotesando entrance of the train station. It is open daily from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. It is 1000 yen for adults and 800 yen for students to enter, and admission to special exhibits is available for an additional fee.
