Review of Yushukan

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2020/03/10 An interesting museum covering the history of Japan at war.
Whilst visiting the Yasukuni Jinja a visit to the Yushukan Museum is a must, espcially if you have any interest in military artifacts and history. As well as military artifacts through the ages...
Reviewed:2019/12/28 History Revisited (sorry revisionist)
The museum has alot of interesting machinery and artifacts, and I appreciated the English information. It occupies a parallel universe where Japan is presented as a victim, forced into World War Two...
Reviewed:2019/12/16 Interesting
I found this museum very cool. Like some of the other reviews say some of the Japanese perspective of how and why they went to war was interesting just make sure you come here with an open mind...

          The setting of countless iconic movie scenes and the inspiration for songs, poetry, and literature worldwide, Tokyo barely requires an introduction. It’s hard for the kaleidoscopic neon lights, wacky pop culture, and some of the world’s tallest structures not to instill excitement in any first-time visitor to Tokyo, whether you’re in the very center of the hustle and bustle in Shinjuku or Shibuya or looking in from the quieter suburbs.
