Tokyo National Museum - 東京国立博物館

The museum houses exhibitions of works of art and artifacts from Japan and across the orient. The collection consists of more than 110,000 pieces, including 87 national treasures and more than 633 important cultural assets. The main building (itself an important cultural asset), displays Japanese arts and crafts. The Toyokan exhibits oriental art and artifacts from Asia and Egypt. In addition to the Hyokeikan (also an important cultural asset where part of it can be used as a rest area), a building recognized for representing the Western style architecture of the Meiji era and the gate to the Tottori-han Ikeda Family's Edo residence (also an important cultural asset), there is also a Japanese garden on the north side of the main building (only open in spring and autumn). A visit requires 3 hours.
