Did you know that there are over 1,000 art museums in Japan and when you include museums of sorts, the total comes to over 5,700!?

In this tour, I'd like to share insight into the rich, dynamic, and multifaceted world of Japanese museums. I'll select some of my favorite museums and tell their stories while offering an outlook on Japan's museum landscape today.

Meiji Jingu Shrine

Meiji Jingu is one of the most popular shrines in Tokyo and is visited by millions of people every year. The shrine’s daily ceremonies, incredible architecture, and scenic grounds make it a memorable and rejuvenating destination for tourists and Shinto practitioners alike.

10:30 AM

Ota Memorial Museum of Art

The Ota Memorial Museum of Art specializes in the genre of Japanese art known as ukiyo-e, which translates to "pictures of the floating world." The art form thrived from the latter part of the 17th century through the 19th century and is often synonymous with woodblock prints. This museum was founded in 1980 after the death of ukiyo-e collector Seizo Ota, whose dying wish was to make his private collection accessible to the public.

Nezu Museum

The Nezu Museum houses an impressive collection of pre-modern Japanese and East Asian art. Carved stone Buddhas, classic calligraphy, ceramic pieces and paper arts vie for attention in carefully curated and continually revolving galleries. Businessman and politician Kaichiro Nezu (1860-1940) was a voracious collector who hoped to share his collection with the public—a mission continued by this museum and foundation.

03:00 PM

Tokyo National Museum

The Tokyo National Museum is the oldest and largest of Japan's top-level national museums. It was originally established in 1872 at Yushima Seido Shrine and moved to its current location in Ueno Park a few years later.

04:00 PM

The National Museum of Western Art

The National Museum of Western Art was established in April 1959 and was based on the Matsukata Collection focusing on the Impressionist paintings and Auguste Rodin's sculptures previously stored by the French government. The museum's purpose is to provide the public with opportunities to appreciate western art. Since its opening, the museum, as Japan's only national institution devoted to western art, has been involved in exhibitions, art work and document acquisition, research, restoration and conservation, education and the publication of materials related to western art.

Tokyo Tour Reviews

Toshi was lovely

Toshi guided us for a night time meal and drinks. He was lovely company and helped us ease into Tokyo.

Grant D.

Thank you for booking my tour! I'm grad to hear that you enjoyed dinner and drinks! There are lots of options to have dinner or drinks, so I would love to guide you again if you are ever back in Tokyo! Arigato!! Toshi

Wonderful Evening with Toshi!

Toshi was an exceptional guide and created a lovely private evening of experiences in Shibuya. Dinner was in a restaurant that felt more local and special than touristy. We got to try local craft beer and enjoy a late night bar scene! Toshi was very accommodating as I’m a vegetarian and made sure there were options for me. He gave us a lesson in some of the common Japanese phrases that we can use throughout our trip. Communication was very easy and he checked in with us prior to our arrival in Japan. He was an absolute wonderful guide!

The perfect introduction to Tokyo!

Toshi was an amazing tour guide. He met me at my hotel and we set off for Senso-Ji temple as he told me about the history and culture. Navigating us through the crowds and trains we had many more fun stops along the way and the visit to cherry blossom street was amazing while they were in full bloom! Arigato gozaimasu Toshi!

Alex L.

Thank you for booking my tour! I appreciate it. Today we visited Senso-ji temple >> Shibuya Crossing >> Gonpachi(Japanese style restaurant) >> Meiji Jingu shrine. It’s super crowded around the city because of holiday season, but I’m glad that you enjoyed everything! I look forward to welcoming you back in the future! Many thanks, Toshi
