Review of Tokyo National Museum The Heiseikan

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2018/07/25 Very good.
I thought this was a good place to visit. The exhibits were quite interesting and we easily idled away a few hours. It gave a good insight into some aspects of Japanese history. Recommended.
Reviewed:2018/02/25 Pleasant surprise
We didn’t even know this was part of the admission fee for the Tokyo National Museum. After visiting the main museum, we walked around and explored the other two remaining buildings. They didn’t stop...
Reviewed:2017/11/30 Just make sure that this is not a special day,,,,
the problem is... if the exhibit is popular and if you come on a "wrong day" you will WAIT as a lot of people would like to see the same exhibit..... but, exhibits are worthy waiting for,.....

Tokyo Main Areas


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.
