I found this place to be quite interesting as you learn what origami means to Japanese culture and how different creations are used to express different values. It is so impressive to see the origami in a museum made into incredible shapes. You can even go upstairs and take origami making classes for as little as 1000¥ which I recommend booking ahead for to guarantee a seat. I think this place offers quite a different experience in Tokyo and would be great to go to if you have some free time while visiting.
