This is a very well laid-out museum with clear explanations in English as well! From swords to artifacts and a section for the Genji Monogatari scroll, it is worth the trip. There is even a nice garden though we did not manage to complete walking...More

Tokugawa Art museum is a little and nice museum located in the Garden. It's really easy to walk and worth the visit. I spent only 30 mins as I was running out of time. No pictures allowed!.
