A nice break after a long day of traveling. They have some very interesting exhibits. More on the modern spectrum, for sure, so might not be family friendly. We spent about 90min-2 hours here.

If you're into architecture, especially Tadao Ando, you have to visit this place. It has many elements that has Ando's signature. The separated two buildings hold two different exhibitions. They have interesting exhibitions that you can't missed.

This is a highly experiential, edgy museum --what would you expect from Issey Miyake? Cool exhibits, cool neighborhood. It's a pleasant 10 min walk from Roppongi, why would you miss it? Great Instagramming potential!

Akasaka / Roppongi
Not so long ago the Akasaka and Roppongi areas were
famous for their nightlife, high-class restaurants,
bars and clubs. More recently, with the opening of
Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka Sacas, the
area has declared itself as the most fashionable spot
to be seen. The area also hosts the National Art
Center and the Mori Art Museum and lots of trendy art
