I went thinking that there was going to be a substantial Georges Rouault exhibit. They had a handful of his paintings in a small room, but I'm under the impression that they will have a bigger exhibit in the fall. HOWEVER...the beautiful scrolls of 19th/early...More

This museum is perhaps less specialized than other reviewers suggested. Along with the focus on ceramics (Chinese, Korean, Japanese) there are often painted screens, illustrated Buddhist poems etc. It's a small museum that takes <2hrs to get around and has a nice view over some...More

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
