“Ok but some of it needs updating”

Tokyo National Museum The Heiseikan
Ranked #26 of 358 things to do in Taito
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 10 June 2014

The museum was nice and the newer stuff really shines but the older stuff really needs updating. Also would have liked to have some kind of Audio guide in English to explain things since most of the information seemed to be in Japanese.

The Heiseikan is the second largest building in the National Museum complex. A little corridor links it to the main building and front entrance. It's home to archaeology and temporary exhibitions. Artefacts date back to the Jomon period of 2000BC and even older.

Full of varied exhibits this museum is well worth a half day visit. We went because the weather was terrible but were glad we did.

This is a museum showing the best in Japanese archaeological and historical artifacts, calligraphy, painting, armour, metalwork, textiles, and exquisite enamelware and ceramics. The attention to detail, colour, and texture are sublime. Some paintings demonstrate "less is more", with scenes of pastoral activity set on a blank background with distant scenes set apart, showing the relation of the scene with it's location, without cluttering the middle distance with scenery. We had a thoroughly enjoyable morning.
