The museum is conveniently located near shops and a train station. I really enjoyed it as there were different media displays and sections devoted to different eras. It ranged from pre-mass media newspaper ads, risque wine posters and the Tokyo 1964 Olympics advertising. I particularly...More

I actually went to this museum twice; the previous time I went and found it closed. This time it was open, and since it was a small museum in the midst of a shopping / commercial complex, a bit hard to find even with the...More

Took us forever to find the place. It's located across the road from Panasonic museum and right before the Dentsu building. To any one looking to go, the museum will reopen on November 1st. Sad I missed it was really looking forward to seeing everything.

It is a nice place with movies, panel, interactive panel and a lot of device and iconic product of all the history of advertising. Easy to find near the Shiodome station. And it is Free.

It's free but mostly in Japanese. The permanent exhibition downstairs is where it's at and you see advertising from old wooden signs to comical ukiyo ads and kabuki product placements to modern copies of western ads. A very interesting way to kill 30 minutes.

A very informative - and free - museum about not only the history of advertising in Japan, but also how it is a reflection of society at the time. Be sure to watch the introductory video before entering the rest of the museum. Most of...More
