We were very impressed with the location of this museum within Ueno Park which houses several other museums plus a Zoo all within a gorgeous park with temples and I'm very sure very pretty cherry blossoms and florals based on the season. The museum itself...More

Tokyo is an international city. When will they wake up to this fact and supply written and audio guides in English? Every other major museum does this.

a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping

ホテルは上野駅にも点在してますが思い切って浅草はどうでしょう。東京都美術館へのアクセスは歩いても行けなくありません。緑豊かな所も通れます。そしてホテル近くで、美術館に行く途中合羽橋など、キッチンツールの店も面白いです。
