Tokyo National Museum, Ueno, Tokyo
This musem is dedicated to the history of Japan, much as I expected. I paid extra to see 'Treasures of a great zen Temple - The Nanzenji'. This was a good collection, although sadly I knew little of Japanese history so although I enjoyed it, it was hard to relate to anything. I did however appreciate the fabulous artwork from this period, and purchased myself a stunning print from the museum shop! The main (free) part of the musuem housed some impressive Samurai outfits, Kimonos and traditional artifacts. Save this one for a rainy day, lots to see but helps you hknow a little more about the history!
