This is exactly what you might expect: a selection of many travel bags and suitcases covering the last century. It starts with hand made products form Europe mostly and arrives at end of past century with innovative plastic Samsonite.

Found this museum via TA and was by our hotel. Worth spending a little time seeing the history of luggage. Some really interesting pieces. Not busy and no cost. Worth checking out for 30-60 min of your time for something different.

This little themed museum which is a bit off the beaten track is a bit of a hidden gem. I never thought it would be interesting, but visited it as had time to kill. Well worth it.

Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
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
