National Museum of Modern Art-Crafts Gallery
The museum offers an overview of Japanese crafts, many executed by famous artisans. The thriving world of contemporary Japanese handicrafts can be viewed in all of its forms; the collection contains lacquer, metal and glass work, textiles, ceramics and of course, bamboo. You might be tempted to visit regularly because the exhibits change often. The adjacent park also provides a refreshing diversion from city life.
Free admission to this Museum on Sundays. They were very helpful at the entrance. One of my extra credits is to visit a museum, they were nice enough to stamp my brochure. Good art featured, the set up is good. Start from the 4th floor and work your way down. Avoid the restaurant, food wasn't all that. Enjoy!
