A must see spot in Tokyo. It's important to see the Japanese review history from their point of view. Plan a couple of hours to explore the museum and the shrine.

As a self-described WW2 nerd, I've visited many countries, museums and battlefields connected to the war from Darwin, Australia; Pearl Harbor; Germany; and Normandy among others. I've never felt as conflicted as I did after leaving this museum. First, the layout is a bit confusing....More

If you are interested in the Japanese military history you should definitely visit the Yasukuni war museum (Yushukan) just next to the Yasukuni shrine. The entrance era with for instance a Zero fighter aircraft on display, can be entered for free. For the rest of...More

Very interesting to see the perspective of the Japanese around Imperialism and WWII. Although most of the museum is text, and mostly in Japanese, the museum adequately portrays the Japanese vantage point on all things war from the last few centuries.

This place oversees the complete war history of Japan through the history..! Almost all battles are within Asia and as such not a part of European history books. The main event is about the Great East Asian War (WWII) as they call it. Only 30%...More

Yushukan, a large museum that commemorates Japan's wars sits right next to the Yasukuni Shrine. You’ll find WW2 Japanese fighter planes on display and on the outside models or battleships and submarines. It’s amazing to note how modern the Japanese military was during the Pacific...More

Plenty of interesting objects and information inside, but mostly presented from a far right imperialistic point of view. So if you know your stuff and can put the information presented in perspective, it is worthwhile to spend some time at this museum as part of...More

This museum provided a very interesting perspective on Japan's lead up to WW2. As a Westerner, I was never taught about the USA's oil embargo of Japan before the outbreak of the war. It appears the USA supplied Japan with over 90% of its oil...More

Nearby
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.
