Edo-Tokyo Museum

Both history and architecture buffs will appreciate the very contemporary building balanced on its landmark, gigantic pillars. Set in a stadium-sized expanse, a model of Nihonbashi (Japan's premier bridge) separates feudal Tokyo (Edo) from modern Tokyo (since 1868). In the permanent exhibition area, you will find original documents of the Edo era. Nostalgic aspects of everyday life are depicted to scale without the restriction of display cases. Ongoing enactments of various folk arts and crafts bring Japan's rich cultural traditions to life. Do not miss the models of the Edo Castle and the Kabuki Theater. See the website for visitor information and the event calendar.

Chiba City Folk Museum

Chiba is a city with a rich history and culture and paying a visit to the Chiba City Folk Museum is one of the best ways to get to know more about it. Built on the site where Chiba castle once stood, the white colored museum building draws inspiration from the original castle. The museum gives insight into the history of the Chiba Clan that dates as far as the 12th Century and also sheds light on the city's modern history. From Samurai armors, weaponry to a replica of a 13th-century Japanese home, the exhibits are very interesting. The museum also holds the Arquebus firearms demonstration every August. Here, you can also try the traditional Samurai robes on the third Saturday of every month except for January and August. During the cherry blossom season, the castle with the pink trees around is a sight to behold.

National Art Center, Tokyo

More of an exhibition hall than a museum, the National Art Center, Tokyo devotes over 14,000 square meters to beautiful artworks. The Center specializes in an ever-changing array of temporary exhibitions that concentrate on the diversity of modern and classical art. Kashiwa SATÔ, designer of the Center's theme, says the facility's focus is to promote "new, more open relationships between people and art". Other than the wondrous art installations on display, the monolithic structure itself is a real eye-grabber. With a curved, stained glass aperture, it is bound to captivate even from a distance. Overall, if you are an art connoisseur, then National Art Center is well worth your time.

Tokyo Station

Located in the east of the city, Tokyo Station handles a vast array of commuter trains running north, south, east and west. All trains are color-coded to match the lines on which they run. Most lines run local, rapid and express trains. Tokyo Station is also the terminal for bullet trains running to all corners of the country. Tickets for these may be purchased at all major JR stations at the Midori Madoguchi (Green Window). It is best to make a seat reservation in advance. Moreover, the imperial red building also houses a plethora of shops, eateries and even a hotel within its premises, making it a premiere attraction.

Watari Museum of Contemporary Art

The Watari-Um Museum, also known as the Watari Museum of Contemporary Art is another addition to the large number of museums in Tokyo that aim at promoting and preserving contemporary art. Artworks of various Japanese, as well as foreign artistes, grace the walls of Watari-Um during numerous exhibitions. Moreover, the museum also boosts upcoming talent by providing a platform to enthusiastic youngsters. A great place to gain more insight into the world of contemporary art. The building itself feels like one of the exhibits with a faded grey facade and black stripes covering the exterior. Appreciation of modern art is subjective though, so whether this museum is a treasure trove depends on the tourist's taste.

Sogo Museum of Art

Sogo Museum of Art aims to contribute to Japan's cultural development, with the amazing collection of paintings that it displays. The mediums are multifaceted, and the beautifully expressive paintings revoke emotions out of the viewers that were otherwise veiled. Sogo Museum should be visited to glance at the wondrous world of fine art, and to experience its effect on you.
