A great way to spend an hour - this museum has hundreds of cameras, including the world's first camera. They have makes from all around the world. Entrance is 300 Yen, and ironically, you cannot take pictures while inside! Closest station is Hanzomon (on the Hanzomon line).

Neighbourhood Profile
Yotsuya / Iidabashi
Yotsuya and Iidabashi are areas that developed around the outer moat of the Imperial palace. Nearby in Kagurazaka, there is an old red-light district with a photogenic feel evocative of the ambiance of old Tokyo. Narrow paths with stone paving remain to this day, and there are long-standing restaurants with geishas and quaint old cafes in townhouse buildings.
