This is the largest museum in Japan and is like their version of the Smithsonian, complete with 8 different buildings. It contains many of the treaures of Japan, along with art Japan's long history, along with some other fine arts which were looted from China and Korea before World War II. Still, the beauty of the things you will see there are worth going out of your way for.
