General information:
During our stay, we only visited the Tokyo National Museum. This museum can be found in the Ueno Park. To our opinion the museum was interesting but it missed some modern interaction tools for the public. The museum complex in Ueno Park consists of six separate building, each with their own specific collection and temporary exhibitions. The information is also written down in English, audio guides are available. The Honkan building (1938) exhibits ancient Japanese artwork, antique Buddhist statues, painted doors, cultural items and historical artifacts. The Hyokeikan building (1909), was built especially for the Taisho Emperor’s wedding, is used only for temporary exhibitions. The Toyokan building (1968) designed by Taniguchi Yoshiro. It features Asian art and artifacts. The Heiseikan building, which was built in 1993 for the Crown Prince’s wedding. It features exhibitions on the ancient Japanese culture and special temporary exhibitions. The Horyuji Homotsukan building, designed by Taniguchi Yoshio (son of the elder Taniguchi Yoshiro), here a collection of religious objects are displayed. Behind the Tokyo National Museum you can find a garden and tea houses, which are open to the public in Spring and Autumn. Also some shops and cafes can be found around the museums.
