Originally established in 1972 at Yushima Seido Shrine, the Tokyo National Museum now stands in Ueno Park, along with the National Museum of Modern Art, the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum and the National Museum of Nature and Science. I had initially expected one museum, but it was a space encompassing six buildings in total, with the added bonus of a Japanese garden. My friend and I were able to visit five of the six buildings as the Hyokeikan (the oldest building, having been built in 1909) was undergoing renovations at the time. The other five buildings housed exhibits from Japanese artwork to Chinese artifacts to religious works from Nara's Horyuji temple. The museum shop is also a decently big size with the white counter tops making one whisper softly as if in a high-end store. Overall, a worthwhile and well-spent 2.5 hours.
